Delta wings are extremely efficient. More so than the canard wing
configuration. Nice projects! :)

Author Nerys ( ago)
I am astonished that they flew as well as they did. I especially love the
first ones and that last one where it dipped down toward the camera then
pulled up and circled about. VERY cool man!

Author Psyonicwombat ( ago)
Uber cool. :)

Author Denis Vasenin ( ago)
It is not a glider, it is just piece of paper with rocket engine.

Author recklesswit2891 ( ago)
i really enjoyed this video. funny how they always seem to miss the trees.

Author suxtaposition ( ago)
Why would you endanger yourself and others with those? Launching from hand
is about the dumbest thing I have ever seen. You do know that rocket motors
can explode on ignition don't you?

Author bikingchad ( ago)
Very impressive! You have amazing luck missing the trees with the first

Author guitargator707 ( ago)
how did u actually make them glide?

Author Ethan Jenkins ( ago)
The first plane on it's first flight was the best- just listen to that sound

Author Len H ( ago)
holy shit this spammed my email lol so a kid can get away with a ton of fun
where a adult must LIVE BY THE LAW

Author valanger ( ago)
It is because of the law in purchase to the explosive material. Maximum
quantity per object. I think, no more than 20 grams. And the motors are
only allowd to ignite in rockts which start vertically (or maximum 30
degress or so). That's law and order. When you want to ignite more and
other explosive things, you need a certifiction! But an 8 years old child
is allowd to start and stear a 25kg jet-engine plane with liters of
kerosene...without any certification.

Author cuuldude1 ( ago)
The Delta Wing's first flight was the best.

Author Len H ( ago)

I really enjoyed your video and all the flights. I was impressed with the
ground take off and landings. The wheels falling off on the one landing was
funny...Thanks for all your effort.
