Nice one, Trevor.
First flight of a tailless design is always a bit tense !

Yes, pitch stability and pitch trim were always going to be the big threats with this one. I think an excess of the former compromised my ability to deal with the latter. However, much better than the other way around!

I've now taken a bit of lead out of the nose and largely eliminated the up aileron from the Butterfly mix so we'll see what the next instalment brings. All being well, I might try to bring it along to the White Sheet meet in a fortnight's time.

Excellent, Trevor: that means we'll still have a tailless glider at White Sheet while the other CW is handing out Easter Eggs...! :D
