Re: Elastic Launched Glider C

I have a new question, will cambering the wings change the ballistic launch of the glider. At Northmont, I launched a flat wing in a "V" shape. It flies fairly decently but I recently have built a slightly cambered wing using the same techniques as my previous glider, and it just wants to nose dive...
