Cheap glider from Poundland - RC conversion Part #4A Camcorder Sunglasses. As usual it looks like I have under powered this conversion. I put tape on the upper surface of the wing to give it dihedral to improve it's stability but unless I upgrade the motors I will need to lose a bit of weight. Plan A is to remove the nose weight and move the battery right to the front to compensate.

I found Watt Waster has done a series on a Dollar Tree glider that looks identical so I have created a playlist of his videos

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.

My "GrandadsOtherChannel" channel is generally where I will host the videos that give extra detail or longer versions of the videos I post on my main channel
