Are you tired of the store bought gliders that don't fly? This little glider is the answer. It can fly for over 15 seconds with a good throw!

PLEASE VOTE!!! (:

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies.

1. glue gun

2. skewer

3. hobby knife

4. clay

5. permanent marker

6. foam plate

Step 2: Draw the Wings and Tail Pieces on the Plate

The wings are 6" long and 4" wide.

The stabilizer 3" long and 1" wide.

The rudder is 1-1/2 by 1" wide.

Step 3: Cut Out the Pieces.

Step 4: Add a Dihedral.

Score the foam with the knife and bend both sides to a 15 degree angle.

Step 5: Glue the Pieces to the Skewer.

Step 6: Balance the Glider With the Clay.
