To the FliteTest Community,
Ty and Henry finished up our first ever glider that was to be pulled by our Apprentice, very much like what others have done on other channels, especially FliteTest. Now we are not experts and any advice that you give us we will take into Season 5 next year. The 8th grade boys fixed the glider and left it for the next crew to work on. It was still a success though, the kids had a lot of fun and we learned a lot from the experience. We will definitely be working on big projects like this in the future.

As always, thank you for the support!
Colton our top pilot took lead on the towing of the glider with the Apprentice 15e

Fun getting it all setup!
You have to mount a Gopro for something like this.
Ty seen here working the release mechanism, making sure that everything is just right.
Holy moly it worked, Henry says just keep flying lets see what happens.
On the first attempt the release opened and the glider landed just behind the infield grass.
The second chance went great until the plane started to roll and then it got caught up bringing both planes down fast. It was actually pretty cool!
You can see how close we were to the houses, bring it down Colton, bring it down NOW! Lol.
Recap, it was still a success, too much fun! Way to go guys. Thanks to FliteTest for a glider plan that the kids were able to build and have fun with.
