Very nice, puts our 1/3rd scale one to shame. Can you give some details, i.e. Wing sections used, c of g position and decalage. Ours is very "squirrely" if towed too fast and while flying OK the elevator doesn't allow a really good flare out.

Loverly glider, nice to see working brakes too. However this might sound strange, can you give some details on the 'V tail" tug please?
I am in the process of building a tug and I've always thought a "V tail" the most sensible way to go.

Thanks

Congratulations on a lovely model and video. Nice to hear the silence of glider flight after the tug lands. Are elevator movements very sensitive?
