Default RC Rocket glider kit vieo

I made a new video showing my 4 RC rocket glider kits up close, and in flight, in case anyone is interested.

Very nice, Frank. I notice that you were consistently on the stick before engine burnout. Was that to keep the altitude down? Also very cool that you were flying in the rain! By the way, those were all what I refer to as 'profile models'. Since they all appeared to be pretty flat, where does the engine go? I couldn't tell from the angle of your videos, but it appeared to me that they were not mounted externally.

Joe, I do a minor amount of steering in boost, just to react to wind mostly, then push over before burn out to keep my speed up. Yes, they are profiles, the motor mount is in the tail typically right on the centerline. If to look here you can see the motor mounts in the pictures
