Soooo pleased with these gliders!

I'm organizing a 'game night' for all ages at church. Back in the 70's I remember flying balsa planes over the creek in Beaver Park, Cedar Rapids Iowa as a family. I thought how fun it would be to have our church kids compete with gliders. I read lots of reviews. First off, many foam and balsa planes simply don't fly. Secondly, even if you pick a brand that does fly, many companies don't pack them protectively and they arrive broken. I read that Pilots HQ ships them very carefully, so I took a chance that once they arrived all 7 would be useable. They came in a cardboard box for protection and inside they were wrapped in bubble wrap. A bear would have had to sit on the box to damage the planes! I know balsa is fragile, but I was VERY careful in punching out the pieces and assembling them. I remembered that it doesn't take much 'push' to get the gliders going. It's -10 outdoors, so I just set it sail in the living room. It flew like a champ until it crashed into my La-Z-Boy, but it survived that gentle crash without breaking. I can't wait for our game night at church! Thank you for providing a quality product at a fair price!

Just like I remembered as a kid

I remembered how much fun I had with these gliders as a child and it was a joy to watch my 5 and 7 year old grandsons having a blast with them. I bought several for each of the boys , because I remembered the gliders were somewhat delicate. These gliders are great.

Great value

I'm excited my order of 25 Boeing gliders arrived timely and undamaged. The gliders will serve as prize for children completing a scavenger hunt associated with our neighborhood block party.
