First test launch of the rocket glider.

3…2…1…

OK, the wind has moved round a bit, so move round, change the angle of launch, change the position of the rocket motor slightly on the glider.

3…2…1…

Hmmm, still needs a little something.

    I figured it out once I got home, when I built it I was more worried about the COG and forgot where you need to balance a rocket.
    Basically I should have balanced it on the thrust line too 🙁

    So have 2 choices now, re-build much lighter, or add weight and balance this one… only problem with that is it wouldn’t get very far with all the weight, so looks like a re-build at the mo 🙂

    Mark II ready for testing… hopefully this weekend.
    Couldn’t balance it totally loads better than Mark I though, and it’s a little heavy, but should be good enough to prove proof of concept, if it works should easily be able to rebuild it much lighter 🙂
