Smile ST-model DG-1000 Gliders Modified

So Ended up crashing my glider and broke the nose and the retractable system. I removed all the broken parts from the retractable motor pod, the servo
and redid the broken nose. Taking advantage of the repair I modified the nose adding the same motor from the pod to the nose of the glider. The wing
joiner also broke. I used a carbon fiber spar and cut it in 4 peaces grouping them together so it would fill the sale space as the original joiner used.
I also added a fifth 32 inch spar slightly thinner that goes inside the wings to give them more strength.

With the glider been lighter it performs better catching thermals and when I use full throttle it can really move.

Here is the video:
