Default 3 New B/Gs (link)

Hello All,

Guillow's has three new, all-plastic (with rubber nose tips) catapult gliders, all having delta wing or (tailless) swept wing designs (see: http://www.guillow.com/pocketlauncher.aspx ), that would make good parasite boost-gliders. It should also be possible for a BT-50 size or larger rocket to carry all three at once.

I'd like to see those in just a slightly larger format. As they are, I would boost them on nothing bigger than a 1/2 A motor.

I agree. They look like good mini motor powered boost-gliders that one could fly, without fear of losing them, even on small fields. A 12" or longer rocket of BT-5 or BT-20 size would make a good, stable booster to carry one or two of them.
