2020-01-18 - Estes Curvilinear
Kit Review by John A

Estes Curvilinear is a basic kit with one challenge.  Getting the fins in place without breaking them is difficult at best as they are extremely fragile until the ring is glued in place.  The remainder of the kit is straight forward.

Kit Review by Mike Caplinger

Boost gliders have a long and not completely successful history as kits.  Early Estes gliders included the Astron Space Plane, Falcon, and Nighthawk, but these soon gave way to a series of kits better known for their interesting appearance than their great glide characteristics.  Larry Renger's invention of the pop-pod configuration in 1966 came to dominate competition, but there have only been a few pop-pod kits, notably the Centuri Swift and (briefly) the Estes Dragon Fly.  In ...

This is a simple level 1 LP build that was a fun evening. The kit couldn't be any simpler to build and the instructions were awesome. It will be a nice addition to my Patriot Battery. When the weather breaks for painting.
