Crash and Burn

I regret to report that project 005 Scissor Wing Transport has crashed somewhere in the weedy terrain surrounding my launch pad. The reckage was recovered and examined immediately. The cause of the crash was unstable glider fight due to a weight imbalance in the tail of the glider portion of the rocket.

Thankfully this was only a test flight of the completed but unfinished model. I will not attempt a rebuild of this rocket mainly because I don't see how this rocket could ever fly for more than a few flights. There are a lot of things that can go wrong with this model and it takes a long time to build and finish.
