Gliders Group Forum is the latest category added to “Galleria of Gliders” and it is designed to get people talking and thinking about all aspects of model gliders, from the most basic chuck and catapult gliders to some of the current ARF/RTF radio controlled gliders.
Topics may include glider aerodynamics, balsa wood selection, construction techniques, glider design parameters, flight trimming, etc. We want to have a free exchange of ideas to benefit everyone, especially those who are new to this aspect of aeromodelling.
For instance, suppose someone has a problem with their catapult glider looping during the catapult phase and wants suggestions on how to solve this problem.
I or someone else may suggest that they warp the trailing edge of the stabilizer down around 1/64” to 1/32” and remove some clay from the nose of the glider and try launching it again, and someone else may have another useful suggestion that worked for them.
Another person may have a suggestion on some building technique that they used relating to gliders and wants to pass that “tribal” knowledge on to others.
So come see what all the HUBBUB is all about . . .
NOTE: The dictionary defines HUBBUB as a situation in which there is much noise, confusion, excitement, and activity.
Doesn’t that describe a Rowdy Group of Glider Enthusiasts at a Flying Event Chucking their Gliders?
