Building the Wizard - A Competition Hand Launch Glider

By Patrick Dionisio and Marshall Geller

Optimal placement of radio gear in fuselageThe radio gear along with the pushrods were dropped in and the c.g. checked. Using an aft c.g. location (per the plans), the final placement of the gear was determined and the components were permanently installed.

 

The ruddervator horns were epoxied into place on the tails and the pushrods were cut to size and soldered at the servo end.

 

Final assembly and weight A rear canopy hold down was made from a piece of large heat shrink tubing (provided in the kit), and a small piece of piano wire was glued under the front lip of the canopy to hold it securely in place. Final weight of fuselage with all components and hardware installed was 5.39 oz., and the completed wing weighed 6.54 oz., for an all up total weight of 11.93 oz.! Final assembly and weight

The Wizard is complete! Here we are with the completed Wizard and we are pleased to report the plane flys great! On the very first hand toss (in windy conditions), the Wizard went up for a ten minute flight!
