Nicwell Glider





Introduction: Nicwell Glider

This is the nicwell kite and upgrade from the bamboo glider. It is bigger and better and very affordable Under 50$. The kite can be used to "float" as its called, a kind of gliding but very slow because your going against the wind. The longest I was in the air was about 2 or 3seconds. You can use it for kite bugging or anything kiting in general. If you need any additional help comment.

Step 1: Building Process.

It is very similar to the last kite, but on a larger scale.

Materials: bamboo (or aluminum), ductape, zipties, tarp, woodglue, metal wire.

The wingspan is 17ft and it is 7ft wide.

Step 2: Flying

Get at least a good 15mph wind on a hill and run into the wind. The glider will float there for a second then bring you safly to the ground (remember it's about 3ft off the ground).

    This is so fun! Are you going to try to refine your design to make your "flight" last longer?

    uh, what do you mean by flight?

    tarps have little holes in them if u use two table cloths it works better

    @tomatoskins i should be getting a 4.5 m kite and mabe a 6m if i get a 6 m im making into a speedflying wing. the nicwel glider is almost a parashute too.


    This thing never flew. It is not real. There are so many things blatantly wrong with this thing it's not even funny.

    this is ingenious. I want to make one.

    I suggest your comment is slightly off point. This project is for fun not for wisdom.

    I look forward to your next instructable,
