this is my balsa catapult glider.my problem:
1.after i attached the mainwing with fuselage with glue. the glue after it dried i saw that fuselage is tilted slightly with the mainwing and not attached straightly.
2.fuselage is twisted slightly
1.balsawood of 3mm and 2mmthickness
Try flying it as it is. If you need to bend or twist the fuselage, you can, but be careful not to over-twist it to the point it breaks. I fly with the stabilizer and wing not lined up. If you look at the model straight from the front, the left tip of the stabilizer is higher than the right. This is called stab tilt, and it helps turn the glider to the left. Fly it first. It may be fine the way it is. The most important thing is for the wing and stabilizer to be flat and not twisted.
I hope thie helps. Good Luck!
I think you both are saying the same thing- Bill was stating when looking at the front of the model, the “left side of the stab” will be high.
The model will tend to glide towards the high side of the stab- Thus, for a left hand turn, the left side of the stab should be up- Think of it this way, if the stab is high on the left side, it will “push”(lift) the stab to the right, thus forcing the nose to the left…
