How to make a balsa wood glider on the X-Carve with Easel
These gliders are super quick and easy to make and provide lots of easy experimentation to get the best flight time.
Design fuselage, wing and stabilizer
I just made up a design off the top of my head that actually flew pretty well, but a little research will give you the best shapes and relative sizes to get the most out of your glider.
Cut the pieces out
I cut the fuselage out of 3/32" balsa and the wing & stabilizer from 1/16" balsa. Be sure to use tabs when cutting these out. The tabs can easily be trimmed with a utility knife.
Assemble and decorate!
The pieces slide right together so the assemble is super fast, but make sure you decorate the glider first to make it look awesome in flight!
