Flight Log - 2019-09-21 - Richard Holmes's Uff Da

Flex wing boost glider from a design by Tim Van Milligan.


Flight Date: 2019-09-21
Rocket Name: Uff Da
Flyer's Name: Richard Holmes
Motors: 1/4A3-3
Launch Site: Syracuse Rocket Club (Weigand's Field)

I moved on to my 1/2A Glider Duration contest entry. This being a non Pink Book contest, I could legally use a flexwing glider, so I flew my Uff Da. Last time I flew it the glider (henceforth Uff Da Glider A) flew straight east into the trees and was never seen again. So this past week I made two new gliders. I selected one (Uff Da Glider B) for this flight and opted for a 1/4A motor.

Boost was good and so was ejection, but there was some sticky glue residue on the glider and it didn’t open fully. It sort of glided, but not very well.
