The Estes (now a Semroc kit) Gyroc and it’s new upscaled version the Tazz along with the Astron Skydart use a tab to hold the control surfaces neutral during boost then at ejection the tab moves with the motor/power pod to allow the elastic/rubber bands attached to the control surfaces to assume the desired angle for recovery. All the instructions are either on the Estes website or JimZ’s website of instruction scans. I think jrap330’s advice is sound - a Skydart build would be a great way to gain some boost glider experience.Probably too late for this build, but I was trying to figure out a way that the ejection charge would change the angle of the stabilizers. Possibly by the motor ejecting, or simply moving back, thus allowing a spring loaded lever to move into the empty space.
Do you know any kits that work that way?
