Here is the second FlatCat glider I built to replace the first one that was lost.
It has flown one time at a SCORE launch in Pueblo Colorado, June 2019.
At ejection the pop-pod hung up on the glider. I thought it was going to be a 'Red Baron' flight, but, to my surprise, the model settled into a stable glide!
When I retrieved the bird, I found that the shock cord/streamer had draped itself over the fuselage right at the glider's CG.
Attached is a pre-flight pic...
