Thank you very much, this was a good help and the fuselage plan is ok for me to make a new canopy/hatch.
I got the glider with 1 set of guild up wings, 1 set foam covered with balsa, and 1 set cut foam with one half covered with balsa.
I hope to have it ready for flight soon
Is there anyone who knows about an omega glider from around 1985.
Just got one and have heard it maybe came from UK magazine.
Something is wrong around the canopy.

Yes, as Gary say.
This will do it
I use to fly gliders 40 years ago, and still try to have some flights every summer.
I have always wanted to try a lowpass in a glider, and this summer I had my first

|Thread: Flying Formula 1 car|
Maiden flight with my new flying RC Formula 1 car
(Vintage Graupner GM racer 3D) that I got for free, from a guy in the RC club.
With some more training I think it will be ok for indoor flying next winter
|Thread: Lidl XL Glider|
For towing the Lidl glider just use a small piece of velcro, works great for small gliders, and up to 3 meters with experienced people
Only use around 5 - 10 mm for the Lidl gliders, how much depend on the velcro.
To release the glider pull hard up or the motor plane level out and make a half roll and go vertical down.
Flying the Lidl today at the beach.
Dune flying in North Denmark
The pitcheron glider is very sensitive to a forward CG.
To get it to loop try to move the CG a bit back, at the underside of the tailplane there is room for a coin or 2.
Try this, or move your battery a bit back.
To get max throw, check in the dual rate meny.. Perhaps you can give it a bit more there, on a Spectrum tx it can go to 125 %
My ballast is lead,It is 1.5 mm thick lead plate 70 mm long, which I rolled together to 14 mm.
And taped a piece of stainless wire on it so It can be pushed all the way back to the wing spar in the hole.
I say the same thing to the members in my club, get some gliders and go sloping It's so fun, relaxing or exiting all depending if you fly in light air, strong wind, combat or DS
Just go for it...
The spar is at 85 mm from the leading edge.
Servo connecting point is at 30 mm.
Movement on the video is 12 mm up and 22 mm down measured on leading edge.
