LIDL Foam Glider - 012 - Test Flight


LIDL Foam Glider - 012 - Test Flight
LIDL Foam Glider - 012 - Test Flight. Very hot day, virtually no wind, good time for some gentle test flights on a nice soft grassy surface. My new FlySky FS-T6 was very handy for adjusting the settings in the field and I think my early suspicions on the size of the rudder were probably correct but we did manage a controlled flight so I am happy to get this far. Recently I spotted a YouTube video of an unboxing of a LIDL foam glider toy. I thought it might be an interesting RC conversion candidate but before I could find one in LIDL there was already a YouTube video of an excellent slope soaring conversion so nothing I will be doing in this series will be new but it will be me trying to do it.
