Exclamation New Design -- Night S.H.A.D.O.

From the sketch collection...

RockSim says this bird will fly as-is, but I'm not making any promises. You will need to balance the glider and trim it for a good glide, then mark the CP. Arrange it directly over the CP position on the boost pod before mounting the launch lug hold down to the pod, and a dowel and pylon (not shown) on the bottom of the glider.

Length: 19.62" (this will change, depending on the final position of the glider)
Diameter: 1.50" (BC-1043)
Fin Span: 10.48"
Weight: 1.75 oz

B4-4......362'......Dv 10 FPS......36" x 1/8" rod
B6-4......370'......Dv 5 FPS.......36" x 1/8" rod
C6-5......806'......Dv 7 FPS.......36" x 1/8" rod

Do not use the A8-3. It doesn't have enough power to get the model moving rapidly enough off the rod.
