DLG Plan: Part 5, Sneak preview Video!

I will continue the build posts, but in the meantime, here's a sneak preview of the glider LIPZOID in flight today on its maiden outing. It dived off the top of the launch, but stabilised nicely in a wide right turn. Lee Hines commented on a forum somewhere that CoG at 45-50% and a fair amount of decalage works well for him. From the brief flying that I've done so far, I'd agree with that. LIPZOID is not trimmed yet as I only had a bit of time to fly today. The sky was beautiful, but it was getting dark.
