Hummingbird glider #2

Ever since February, when I launched and lost and then found destroyed the glider, the pod of my Hummingbird and been sitting, waiting for a new glider. Well, now it has one.

It's made almost entirely of balsa. The wing is 3.5" wide and about an inch at it maximum chord; overall it's about 4.5" long. After some messing around with, it glides pretty well.

I colored it green with a grey tail and pink throat - like a ruby-throated hummingbird. It'll be a bit hard to find in the grass, but fortunately it won't be too hard to find in the short grass of my local flying field.
