Default JR's Pride Miniature Sailplane (RC)

Jr's Pride sailplane was offered as a Hand launch and slope soarer, It was designed by Hurb Clukey in 1971. Just a little over 14 inches, it is a small but very fun glider for the back yard. It was part of the Tenderfoot series. As you will see in the video, the glider becomes even more fun as a RC. The electronics was pulled from a FlyZone "Playmate". This a beautiful designed H/L and flies very well, even in some wind. Enjoy!

Sorry, the video got hacked and music was changed. Always someone out there that has nothing else better to do than mess up a nice video and put the most crappy music you can come up with. Seemed to be music from a 4 year old. Not going to give them credit and re-post the video.
