Another sweet glider. I don't think my back would forgive me if I got a DLG. :)

My newest is this scratch-built flying wing.

I wanted to add lights for night flying. Rather than place them outside the wing, I attached them to the ribs inside the wing.

Actually, the same goes for handling wind.

Cool. Thanks.

I ain't got no bandsaw, though, but I suspect I could somehow accomplish the cutting.
