Great work. :)
I was able to get higher altitude, and a much better glide experience. With greater weight (25% heavier), the glide rate was a little worse; but...
Had a successful launch and glide today! Used a B6-2.

Something like Goddard's...
A nice pic on a cool, sunny afternoon.
Ok, it took a little wiggling, but the plywood hold-down came off.
