I would say they were all great flights. Paul's flight was a great one. We all enjoyed building the kits and they flew great.

Most of the baron-style gliders were from Squirrel Works. There was a scratch built 18mm Flying Jenny, and a scratch built Micro-Maxx flying Jenny. To round out the glider theme, we had a DeeCee Thunder, vintage Sky Dart & MPC Flat Cat, two scratch built clones of the old Astron Invader, and a few others I can't recall.

The 18mm Red Barons seemed to fly the best on B6-2 motors. The Mega Barons flew well on E15 and E18 motors, and one had a nice boost on a 3xC6-3 cluster. The D12-3 and E12-4 motors just don't seem to have enough thrust to overcome the drag of the Mega-Baron, tending to create an arcing boost, with ejection very low.
