Sandpiper 18" Balsa Glider - 3 Flights
 
02:29
Having fun flying some of our best catapult launch gliders (CLG) outdoors. Longest flight was 40.71s. Model: Undesignated (SP18 Class) Wing Span: 18 inches Weight: 10.55g Date Built: Unknown Designer: Brad Williamson Flight: 11/6/16 @ 5:30pm Quick Links: 0:10 Flight #1 - 32.84s 0:48 Flight #2 - 38.67s 1:34 Flight #3 - 40.71s Brad flies a Sandpiper 18" model three times in calm weather with no thermals. Each flight is better than the previous one. Average flight time was 37.4 seconds. I'm getting better at making these. This one has a tighter turning radius than I prefer. Maybe I have a little too much tilt on my V-tail. I probably could get more height on this one if I tried harder. But, can I achieve a 1 minute flight without any thermals? The Williamson brothers have plans to build more gliders and post more flights. [Please comment, subscribe, and stay tuned!] Enjoy flight and enjoy life, my friends!

How to Build a Balsa Glider - 12" Sandpiper - Part 1
 
12:50
Build your very own Sandpiper 12" Balsa Glider! Nighthawk Gliders has revealed their secret sauce in making a great Catapult Launch Glider (CLG). Learn how to make one for yourself in this 3 part series. In this video (Part 1) you will learn how to cut the Wing, Fuselage, and Tail. Hey, look! Here are links to all 3 videos-- how handy is that? (Part 1) https://youtu.be/f-n7rVTnhP8 (Part 2) https://youtu.be/5EHfOWc5k5w (Part 3) https://youtu.be/nJlLFu3fpVg Launching Tips: (1) Launch upwards at an angle (pitch) higher than 45%. You'll have to experiment with what works best for your glider. (*DO NOT launch with wings parallel to the ground unless you prefer to stall the plane dramatically and watch it crash and burn-- just sayin'*) (2) If you are right-handed, hold glider 45-90 degrees rotated (rolled) to the right before launching. If you are left-handed, you have a very creative mind and I'm sure you can figure out how to reverse this instruction. (*DO NOT launch with wings parallel to the ground unless you prefer the glider do a big loop and bury itself inside the back of your skull... yeah, not pretty!*) (3) It is preferred to launch with goggles-- If you poke one eye out, you can at least watch your glider fly, but just not in awesome 3D. If you poke both your eyes out then you can no longer enjoy all that is glorious that makes a Nighthawk Glider sail the skies so majestically. (Hey, at least you can't say I didn't warn you!) (*DO NOT launch with wings parallel to the ground unless you prefer to dive bomb some of your curious spectators at the park, get sued when someone gets hurt, and then spend the rest of your allowance on someone's medical compensation! How can you buy balsa if you have no more money?!? Do the math, son*) (4) What about a catapult launcher? Oh yeah, I didn't show you how to make one. Well, you're on your own there. Try some 1/8 inch thick rubber and tie it in a loop at the end of a 6-8 inch stick-- Viola! (Hey, I didn't say that was rocket science, did I?) Oh, you're too stubborn to make one? Well, ok, smarty pants, it looks like you are a proud owner of a homemade HLG (Hand Launch Glider) now, aren't you? (*Did I say this already? DO NOT launch with wings parallel to the ground! We'll hear me now and believe me later... JUST DON'T!*) (5) Beware of thermals!!! Yeah... it'll happen to you, too, someday! It will be a bittersweet moment, I guarantee you that! If you build one, please post a video of it flying and and let us know about it in the comments. We would love to see it! Enjoy flight and enjoy life, my friends!

Styrofoam Plate Glider Catapult Launch Overscourt Wood 170502
 
02:19
Styrofoam Plate Glider Catapult Launch Overscourt Wood 170502. The full name of this glider should be "Paper and BBQ skewer plane - styrofoam alternative" as it was built in that original project but it is a bit of a mouthful. More nose weight, however the extra mass is making the wings flex quite dramatically on launch. I had intended to start a fresh build but I haven't done that yet so I gave this one another outing. I will do a second video showing what I call a "Lazy Discus Launch" style which puts less stress on the wings. Editor Serif MoviePlus X6 Camera Canon Powershot SX60 HS I am not endorsing these products so I suggest you do your own search as the prices and specifications will vary and the links I used will probably be out of date when you come to read this. I just list the item title and you can cut and paste it into your eBay search. It will probably work on other online stores too.

Sandpiper 1 catapult launched glider 1st flights

Here is my Sandpiper 12 inch catapult launched glider designed by Nighthawk Gliders. I made it to a video tuturial by Nighthawk Gliders. The balsa was ordered on line and was a little to dense for my liking, next time I'll visit my local model shop and choose the material. The Sandpiper is a great little clg easy to build and great to fly. My best flight so far with the Sandpiper is 30.8 seconds the longest yet from any of my clg models, and there's more to come. Thank you Brad and Bruce at Nighthawk Gliders for sharing this design.

McGill Glider Test Launch 3
 
00:07
The Boeing Flight contest is a technical competition in which contestants design airplanes/airborne structures made of balsa wood. The entries are judged on: 1) longest time flown 2) longest distance flown 3) best design 4) best team participation and 5) best documentation of project. The competition will be held at the NSBE National Convention. ELIGIBILITY: The Boeing Flight Competition is open to all Undergraduate students who are current, paid NSBE members. GUIDELINES: Participants must build a glider according to guidelines and demonstrate its airworthiness in a series of flight tests. To ensure uniformity of results and fairness, each glider shall be launched by means of a simple rubber band catapult (a string of rubber bands linked together can also be used). The requirements for launching are as follows: The glider must be launched horizontally from the top of a typical table, approximately 30 above the floor, with sufficient initial speed to allow it to glide as it departs from the edge of the launch platform. It must be a team effort (greater than one person, but no more than four members per team will be allowed). A person cannot be a member of more than one team.

Catapult Launched Gliders are balsa wood gliders that are launched by rubberband and stick very similar to a slingshot. They range in wingspan from around 8 inches to around 15 inches. These gliders represent real aircraft...mostly the early jets and experimental rocket aircraft...a lot of fun for park flying!

this glider is not so high performance. its ideal flight time is about 30~40sec (no wind) . but if there's ascend air, it can fly few minutes. use 3mm balsa plate for main wing (lighter one is good), 1mm balsa for tail wing. (hard one is good)

Because I have only low quality balsa wood - I made main wings thinner to maintain proper weight. -~~~~~~~~~~~~~§~~~~~~~~~~~~~~- Patreon supporters: Kermets - https://www.youtube.com/user/kermets Gorazd Cok - https://www.youtube.com/user/neutrno Your free will is to help me grow my channel and improve my tools for making videos.

Atlatl Launch RC Glider
 
14:56
This video has been a long time in coming. I've had this idea for years, but never found the time to test it out... Until now! The results were a little underwhelming, but I do plan on trying to perfect the idea in the future. The idea of having a small glider that I can fly around for fun almost anywhere is way to enticing to abandon.

Experimental 12" Balsa Glider - Test 2
 
02:53
Brad flies an awesome experimental 12" model in calm weather which result in a personal record free-flight duration for this model of 44.18s. Quick Links: 0:13 Flight #1 - 43.70s (Catch) 1:03 Flight #2 - 40.74s (Close Fly-by) 1:50 Flight #3 - 44.18s (Close Fly-over) This was flown in a late evening in February with no help from thermals so this video shows its true gliding capability. I think next step is to classify this bird and build some more! What do you think? Model: Undesignated Wing Span: 12 inches (30.5 cm) Weight: 6.59g Built: Unknown Date (Summer of 2016) Designer/Builder: Brad Williamson Flight: Feb 19, 2017 @ 6:00pm ET Music: "Big Mojo - Vadodara" - Kevin MacLeod We're just having fun flying some of our best outdoor (CLG) catapult launched gliders. The Williamson brothers have plans to build more gliders and post more flights -- please [subscribe], like, and comment for more! Also, were going to get tickets for FliteFest East in Ohio as hosted by the awesome guys at FliteTest-- we hope to see you there!

How to Build a Balsa Glider - 12" Sandpiper - Part 3
 
11:14
Build your very own Sandpiper 12"" Balsa Glider! Nighthawk Gliders has revealed their secret sauce in making a great Catapult Launch Glider (CLG). Learn how to make one for yourself in this 3 part series. In this video (Part 3) you will learn how to apply proper dihedral and assemble all the parts. If you watched this whole (Part 3) episode and have NOT watched (Part 1) or (Part 2), you are going at this backwards, my friend... I'm guessing you must be the type of person who eats his dessert first-- or reads the last chaper to a mystery novel to eliminate the suspense. Go back to Youtube Search results and find the other videos.... or scratch that... on the other hand... just click these links below. (Part 1) https://youtu.be/f-n7rVTnhP8 (Part 2) https://youtu.be/5EHfOWc5k5w (Part 3) https://youtu.be/nJlLFu3fpVg Launching Tips: (1) Launch upwards at an angle (pitch) higher than 45%. You'll have to experiment with what works best for your glider. (*DO NOT launch with wings parallel to the ground unless you prefer to stall the plane dramatically and watch it crash and burn-- just sayin'*) (2) If you are right-handed, hold glider 45-90 degrees rotated (rolled) to the right before launching. If you are left-handed, you have a very creative mind and I'm sure you can figure out how to reverse this instruction. (*DO NOT launch with wings parallel to the ground unless you prefer the glider do a big loop and bury itself inside the back of your skull... yeah, not pretty!*) (3) It is preferred to launch with goggles-- If you poke one eye out, you can at least watch your glider fly, but just not in awesome 3D. If you poke both your eyes out then you can no longer enjoy all that is glorious that makes a Nighthawk Glider sail the skies so majestically. (Hey, at least you can't say I didn't warn you!) (*DO NOT launch with wings parallel to the ground unless you prefer to dive bomb some of your curious spectators at the park, get sued when someone gets hurt, and then spend the rest of your allowance on someone's medical compensation! How can you buy balsa if you have no more money?!? Do the math, son*) (4) What about a catapult launcher? Oh yeah, I didn't show you how to make one. Well, you're on your own there. Try some 1/8 inch thick rubber and tie it in a loop at the end of a 6-8 inch stick-- Viola! (Hey, I didn't say that was rocket science, did I?) Oh, you're too stubborn to make one? Well, ok, smarty pants, it looks like you are a proud owner of a homemade HLG (Hand Launch Glider) now, aren't you? (*Did I say this already? DO NOT launch with wings parallel to the ground! We'll hear me now and believe me later... JUST DON'T!*) (5) Beware of thermals!!! Yeah... it'll happen to you, too, someday! It will be a bittersweet moment, I guarantee you that! If you build one, please post a video of it flying and and let us know about it in the comments. We would love to see it! Enjoy flight and enjoy life, my friends!

Andy Sephton's Scale Indoor Free Flight Glider from Launch Point
 
00:34
Veron Slingsby Prefect Mk1 Indoor winch launch from the launch point. The video was taken during a practice/research session at RAF Shawbury on 27th Oct 2013. The Scale Indoor Glider programme was to see if it's possible to fly a Kit Scale glider indoors. The minimum flightime for a scoring flight in BMFA competition is 15 secs, which was achieved on mosts flights from ground release to touchdown. The research programme was successful and the results were encouraging!

Catapult Gliders in RC Combat? (Flite Fest Ohio 2018)
 
11:03
We launch Catapult Balsa Gliders in RC Combat. Why? Because, Why not? We do things differently here on Nighthawk Gliders... So, check it out! Yeah, sometimes we don't exactly follow the rules... but, one could argue... are there really any rules for RC combat? At Flite Fest, RC Combat is a tradition. It's a must. It's a right of passage, It's just loads of fun. I guess since we are not exactly experts at RC airplanes, why not enter a couple free-flight CLG Gliders? If you think this is fun, be sure to subscribe, like, and comment! We think we have discovered a new tradition for us at Nighthawk Gliders and will try this again next year! Brad and Bruce are brothers-- just having some fun building, sharing, and flying Zero channel RC gliders in RC combat! Who does this?!?
