Introduction: Mini Glider

5cm long glider with an 8cm wing span

Step 1:

Things needed
1. Paper
2. Pen
3. Rule
4. Scissor

First: draw the diagram as shown in the image.

Step 2:

Cut out the diagram and fold it exactly in half.
Use glue.
Fold the wings out.

Step 3:

Roll the thingy on the nose around the fuselage.

Step 4:

And your done!
Please keep in mind that this glider is very sensitive to slight winds.

Step 5:

Now you can make your own glider of any size by using the same proportions.
Keep these facts in mind for a good design
1. The wing shouldn't be on the center of the fuselage but a little towards the nose.
2. The area of paper used on side 'A' should be equal to side 'B'. This can be done by first measuring the area of side 'A' and then adjusting the length of 'X' so that the area of 'B' would be the same as 'A'.

Good photos! Do you still have the original design? Can you scan it in to make it easier to cut out and put together?

Nice! Now I can spam you!
Just joking, never mind

Mmm... Autocad. That things kinda tricky to use. I'm taking a pre-engineering class in my 9th grade right now and the program is very hard to use with triangles... but autocad is a great solution. I'll try it when I get to school tomorrow.

u know the design is great, it doesn't fly though :0, my suggestion, make it thicker somehow
