Additionally, glider fliers may also be flying on Monday, May 21 in the morning at Albuquerque's Balloon Fiesta Park. Check with the Contest Director at Maloof Air Park on Sunday for an update to that effect.
This trophy/plaque is alderwood and the text plus graphics are laser cut. We are holding four events (see flyer) and this plaque is for the Old Timer Glider event. As you can see, we are being supported in major way by our host club, the Albuquerque Soaring Association.

Instead of trying to control twin rudders which is problematical (makes for a tail heavy situation) Jim used ailerons . A great solution for RC electric. And ailerons are legal for SAM competition. When we flew it, it seemed nose heavy or perhaps there's not enough decalage. Jim will make some adjustments and fly it again.
