Edmonds Deltie Boost Glider

My second attempt at a boost glider. I ordered the Deltie Boost Glider from Apogee Components for my NARTREK Silver level. This is a competition quality kit, and has the best cut balsa sheets I have seen in a kit. It has nice instructions and is quite easy to build.

Pod Dia: 0.544"; Length: 16.5"; Glider Wt.: 5 gm.; Glider Wingspan: 8.87"; Motor (1): 13mm
Status: Active
