I know a lot of folks have adapted Guillow's styrofoam gliders for deployment from rockets. I picked some up myself. The standard white seems like it might be a little hard to spot coming down, so I'm curious to see what others have done with them. Any clever use of paint or streamers or reflective tape to make them easier to see?
Ah yes, the shuttle orbiter glider. Don't have any of those yet, but I'd like to get one for a shuttle stack. Thanks!

You could always paint one up to be one of the Moonraker shuttles. Moonraker 5 was the one outfitted with lasers (always good for shooting down poisonous orbs).

Next time you fly 'em, please try to get a video.  They look cool in the photos.
