Default Virgin Galactic R/C rocket glider

Video goes through what I modified to make a version based on spaceship 2 that flies quite well given the intrinsic non rocket glider friendly handicaps of the design(long unsupported tail booms, very rearward motor, very forward CG, narrow wingspan and small area)....and the first three flights I flew.
The third flight has the pitch throws reduced from 125% to 80%, 3 grams more nose weight added and a slight bit of up trim on boost which was almost hands off...
