Default Wolverine RC RG

I wanted to do a slightly different take on my Mach 10 based Mach 2 RC Rocket glider, but do a few changes based on what I had learned while kitting that model. I wanted to use a longer, smaller 3" tube, move the wing to the middle of the tube and drop the T tail and make it look more like the old estes Wolverine rocket that I loved as a kid. With the wing through the middle of the tube, I was able to get rid of the keel I had on the Mach 2 since the servos were up higher, and I was able to offset the rail buttons so that they weren't on the bottom. I had Mark at stickershock scale up a portion his wolverine decals and add the speed brakes and canopy from my Mach 2 kit. Wingspan is 32", weight is right at 10.75 oz rtf. Not sure when I can maiden it since we just had a cold snap.

Well it was 35 degrees and windy, but got three flights in. cg was perfect, needed about
1/8" of downtrim for boost but otherwise very nice flying model, handled the wind nicely.

Here is a video I made assembling the second prototype so you can see how easily it goes together.

Here's the video from this morning, it was raining a bit, buy my daughter held the umbrella and video taped and I flew, second flight, I had a bit too much tape holding the igniter in and it yanked the controller wires with it for the first 20 feet

The motors are the Aerotech 24mm e-6rc motor, an endburning blue thunder, I carry them.
