#makemas this afternoon with cardboard. Son said he wanted a "car size space shuttle" so we got to it with Amazon boxes, shipping tape, a carbon fiber tube spar, and Makedo fasteners. Quickly realized it balanced and decided to make it flyable..."

After short glide tests inside we took it to the front yard for a maiden flight pic.twitter.com/M505me3eci— Justin K5EM (@k5em) December 25, 2018
Then we did a few more flights, it was very stable and flew well pic.twitter.com/RaEZgBeYZR— Justin K5EM (@k5em) December 25, 2018
