Afternoon Project Pizza Tray Glider Part #3 Test flights – Camcorder Sunglasses

Afternoon Project Pizza Tray Glider Part #3 Test flights - Camcorder sunglasses. Can't quite get the balance right between the CG and adjusting the elevator when I use the catapult launch but the flies were causing us problems again so we cut the session short. The camcorder sunglasses have a fault with audio recording and create a ticking noise which really spoils the audio so I replaced it with music.

I have thousands of videos on YouTube covering a wide range of subjects. To find them follow my search guides or or see my playlists page
Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
