Estes Skydart II #3229 Build, Finished



This build was a bit of a conflict for me. I like my balsa grain filled and paint smooth. I did my best to keep it light, it did finish out at just 3 oz. without the engine. This model didn't end up with my usual glossy finish.
The face card says the weight should be around 3.1 oz. It may not be a contest duration glider but should still perform fine.

  1. Hey Chris,
    Looks good to me. Did you test glide it yet? And did you weight it on one side to glide in circles, or just a flat glide?

    1. Hi BAR,
      I wanted to launch it this last weekend at NEFAR but the winds were too strong. I couldn't even do any trim glides. I'll launch it one of these days.
      Depending on how it does with the first B6-2 I'll decide if it needs weight on one side before using a C6-3.
