GammaStar RC Rocket Glider

The maiden flight of a GammaStar RC rocket glider at the Rhyl and District Model Flying Club 2010 Aerotow event. The Tug is a Decathlon (120 size) converted to E-power by Mark "Barnesyboy" Barnes. The glider is towed to altitude, released, and then after a bit of gliding, the Estes D12 rocket motor is fired remotely. The idea was to release at a higher altitude, but the tow hook fractured on the way up.
