Giant rocket powered glider

Postby Maxout » Mon Nov 26, 2018 3:48 pm

I thought I'd drop in once again and just leave another tidbit of the crazy stuff that's going on at the Finn farm. I've been wanting to go after the F Rocket Glider record since this forum was in its first stable and happy estate, so yeah, it's been a while. And finally, it has happened. Built in less than two weeks, survived a massive crash, and flew perfectly, flawlessly, on its second launch ever and its first public flight.

I hate to send y'all off to a different forum, but alas, I must. Here is the build thread:
