Gliders

Gliders pre-date all other forms of flying machines and provides a very interesting modeling option. BMJR\'s recent introduction into tow-line gliders is in support of the NFFS \"one-design\"competition for 2002, 3 & 4. Rules for the event are from the 1960\'s AMA rule book requiring the model to have a total projected wing/tail area of 279 square inches or less and a minimum weight of 145 grams (5.08 oz.). Models are launched by towing on a 50 meter (160 ft.) towline.
