Default $10 glider

Yup u heard it i built a 10 dollar glider. I used two seets of that 3/8 of an inch thick foam board with the paper over it. For control surfaces, i used some left over balso scrapes. It has a 50 inch semi cimertrical flat bottom airfoil wing, 38 inch fuse, and weighs in at 28 ounces with standard radio gear. I will post pics as soon as i can. I havent flown it yet cuz im not sure how to located the cg, any sugestions?

Here is a web site that has a cg calculator on it.


There are also many other useful calculators under the tools & stuff section.
