    hi friends i have made a tiny glider but its a total disaster as it nosedived and i am beginner i have placed the wing with nagative incidence with reference to tailplane and i have used dihedral for stability but both sides were not equally displaced dihedraly and also wing is not placed at rightangle to fuselage.i used instant ca glue for all joints .i used two blocks to support fuselage so that i can attach wings but it not worked well for me..

    please guide this beginner how to do it correctly with necessary instruments and arrangement!
    thanks for help


    I did this once, and used two AA batteries for the dihedral – each battery was laying on its side under each wing. Perfact match since the batteries are the exact same size.

    Incidence problem solved by using a 3/32″ or 1/8″ balsa fuselage. Don’t change the angle of the top where the wing will be, don’t change the angle on the bottom where the tail will be – you then have zero-zero incidence. I just made a nice curve from behind the wing back to the tail on the top of the fuse to make it look nice.

    I hope this helps you.
