Hello Grin, I designed a "Cheap balsa chuck glider"  out of a balsa stick and some 1.5mm balsa Grin

Here is small flight video:

The glider was just glued together and flown. NO SANDING, FINISHING OR TRIMMIMG was done on it.

Weight is 5.0 gms Drool Grin. The first flight went well, and would have been better had I taken a bit more care during assembly Bang Head and sanded stuff properly Bang Head

It's wingspan is 36cm.
Designed to be extremely simple to assemble, and fly. Rubber band was used as a nose weight to balance it.

I would like some chuck glider experts to comment on its characteristics  Hats Off

P.S.: I do plan to make kits for the same if many people are interested in it(approx Rs.110)

Pics attached

I fly because it releases my mind from the tyranny of petty things.
