I am getting ready to build a wright glider model out of cardstock that I will launch on one of my glider kits booster rockets (probably the Aurora)

I plan to launch the glider on December 17th. I'll post pictures from the launch if I can tkae some.

Is anyone else planning any projects for 100 years of flight, or planning any launches for December 17th?

Yeah it is deffinatley going to be a challenge. I am going to attach the glider to the Aurora kit's rocket to launch it, so it should work out ok (lets hope):p
