Making Gliders Work | Rotating Objects

1. Set the glider behind the tow craft. Just the one waypoint. Use the "set" function to attach the glider to the towplane. Use GAttack waypoint for the towplane to release the glider. Make sure there is somewhere flat for the glider to land 2-5K (IIRC) from the GATtack point. Some time ago one of the patches apparently made the gliders more difficult to use.

Fixing Frisbees With Hot Water

I like to play Frisbee golf with my Discraft Ultimate frisbees, and they tend to get warped and dented over the course of a few holes. This leads to wobbles in flight, reduction in accuracy, and a generally frustrating experience. Worst of all, I tend to smack a brand new Frisbee into a telephone pole within the first ten throws!

I stumbled around the Internet and found that hot water made the difference. The 4 frisbees I recovered were warped and basically un-throwable. They wobbled all over the place and they dropped out of the sky like rocks.
