I just finished up my second prototype of an RC rocket glider version of the fireball xl5 came out pretty nicely 20 in wingspan 34 in Long 11.75 Oz ready to fly. I did this one in white to save a little bit of weight and I think it still looks pretty nice.

there's also a video I made of the first prototype that I merged together with the original show intro

Great flight (although you are encouraging @lakeroadster with that video!)

I am curious why you land on the asphalt rather than the grass? Do you get much scraping?
