EKW and X-1 get trim flights

The X-1 I built back 8 years ago or more. Today I did glide tests and to my surprise it flew very well. Now that I have the CG just right I can start testing with the Jet X beta test motors. So next time out we fly it on the rocket.

George Bredehoft’s EKW C 3606 just flew out of my hands. A bit of down thrust and right thrust and she flew true and level. CG required a bit of aft ballast but only a small bit. Next time out I plan longer flights on more turns.
