I had that happen with one of the old gliders I used to build. A friend and I built a set one weekend and then late one night took them out for fun. It was in England and after 1/2 hour or so the skins on the wings started to get floppy... even with a good layer of dope on them. Took back inside and hit them with a blow dryer and headed back out! Lost that one, when I was flying in some rolling hills. Caught an updraft and it just kept on going, watched it continue to climb till was out of sight!
Thanky guys. The Videos were made by John Lancaster (Robobiggles on youtube). We had great fun doing this stuff

This is the obvious reason why papercrafting is a winter hobby for me

It's been 30 some odd years, but I used to fly an electric park flyer, and a gas HobbyZone Easy 80, my main hobby was racing 1/10th scale rally cars. I always loved flying, but never got good enough at it to turn it into anything other than a diversion. I helped an old friend build a 10ft SR-71, with two of those turbojets, never saw it fly though My friend died before maiden flight, and his widow sold all the stuff.
