Default RE: Scratch Designed/Built Sailplane

Thanks guys. I did a little gliding with my X-Plane virtual version & she seemed to tool along just fine without power. My virtual model isn't really detailed enough to gather any useful data like sink rate or optimal airspeed etc. I wasn't able to program the SD 7023 airfoil into the sim plus I'm still guessing at the final weight. We'll have to wait for the maiden to find out more.

Plans are a distinct possibility but lets see if she flies first.
