Flying hovercraft!

Bungee jumping, kite-boarding... Why do all the extremest sports seem to come from New Zealand? The lightweight, canvas-covered wings are attached to the craft with what he calls a "Jesus pin". "If that comes out, you see Jesus," he said. Because the hovercraft is not classed as an aircraft under New Zealand aviation laws, the operator does not require a pilot's licence. Daily Telegraph.

Flying Pig Website

If anybody likes automata, but can't be bothered to work in wood and metal, try Flying Pig models.They (mainly he) make and sell cardboard kits that move in interesting ways.Obviously, most of them are for sale, but he has some free models for downloading, which change very occasionally.Probably the most interesting parts of Flying Pig for this site, though, are his Workshop Notes blog, where Rob updates readers on the process he goes through developing his models (he's part way through a dinosaur at the moment, and has released a kids range).He also has a section of mechanisms, with animations of all the paper mechanisms he uses, plus several that don't go into paper models (like a stirling engine).Generally, it's a great resource for anybody interested in engineering, paper or otherwise.

Flying car idea

I was thinking about building a flying car that would have most wingspan hidden under the car (pops out when activated) and the doors would be the tips. (What used to be the back doors would roll over van-style, and the back would otherwise be covered by sheet metal) In the back, there would be two vertical rudders and the spoiler would be cut into flaps for horizontal rudders. The thing would overall be powered by two helicopter jet engines. Once the flight system is activated, the gear shift (auto trans) would turn into the throttle, and the gas/brake pedals would turn into the rudder pedals. The idea is to make a flying car that still (when wings are stowed and trunk cover is closed) looks like a normal car. The question: is this possible?

City Flying Taxi

LINK"Developed by the British company Avcen, the Jetpod is a small twin-jet aircraft with newly developed VQSTOL (Very Quiet Short Take-off and Landing) technology - and it’s aimed to make short-distance air travel possible in built-up urban areas by the year 2010.""75 Jetpods would service a city the size of London and thereby relieve road traffic of 37,000 return car journeys every day. A one-way flight from outer London to the city centre would take just 4 to 6 minutes. The Jetpod doesn’t even require a conventional runway. It can land on grass, dirt or stone-strewn areas. Avcen designed the Jetpod using the latest jet engine technologies for optimal fuel efficiency and lower emissions noise levels, when compared to car transportation.TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONSDRIVE SYSTEM: Dual jet enginesENGINE THRUST: 2 x 13.3 kN (3,000 lbs)CRUISING SPEED: 550 km/h (350 mph)FLYING RANGE: 1480 km (920 miles)OPERATING PAYLOAD: 700 kg (1,543 lbs)SEATING CAPACITY: 7"This is pretty cool, can't wait to see if it actually gets into production.

Self-Flying Balloon

I have an idea to make a bunch of smallish balloons that have a LED sinside and small circuits that would control small heating elements to randomly change the density of the air inside the balloons, making them rise or fall. Just as a fun art project, making a bunch of them and letting them into a room for a party or something. A couple of issues I have: I'm having a hard time figuring out how to calculate the buoyancy, though that may have to come later once I decide on all the components. I don't want to use any lighter-than-air materials like Helium, just regular air heated up. I've been trying to find some small ceramic heaters, but I haven't had much luck. Ideally, something like this seems like it would work perfectly, but I need to find some that I can buy in quantities less than 20,000: http://cdsk.manufacturer.globalsources.com/si/6008801115398/pdtl/Heating-element/1070197186/Surface-Heating-Elements.htm Whatever I choose would also need to heat up and cool down pretty quickly so the rising/falling would have a stronger effect. I might be asking too much here. I'd need the whole circuit to be pretty small and lightweight. If I use an Arduino Uno, could I just transplant the ATmega328 into the balloon? If I used a small watch battery, would that even provide enough juice to operate an LED and a heating element? Anything bigger seems like it would be too heavy. As for the casing, I plan on whipping something up in Blender and printing it out in lightweight plastic. It would have to hold the circuitry and be airtight to keep the balloon sealed. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

What do I need to make something that can fly a Santa accross a room?

The idea here is that we want the finale to be building and flying "something" which can carry a Santa as far as possible and whoever's get's the further wins... I have never bought, made or played with any toy planes, drones, anything that flies etc so I wondered if there was a basic list of items we'd need to put these together? I should imagine we don't want them to take more than a few hours to make in total, and they should be powered by a motor and remote control? Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kate

Coanda effect VTOL or "hovercraft" - making a working model

I am currently working on the design of an impeller driven lifting device utilising the Coanda effect. My 3D printer is of course a great help here but only useful to test the vacuum cleaner assembly that I salvaged for the motor and impeller part. So far it is just I am interesting to see myself instead of reading it on the net but I was wondering if any RC model makers out here would be interested too? I have no clue about the available brushless motors and controllers or how much extra weight for electronics, batteries and so on but could provide the 3D files and design tips if anyone would dare to create a working RC model. Unlike all the designs on Youtube no propeller is used for the lift! Those designs might still use the Coanda effect, or better adjust it's airflow, for the steering but the actual lift comes from a prop. An impeller as used in vacuum cleaner does not provide lift and is more the "real deal". The last real world project that I know of was the Avrocar that was tested during the cold war but never made it into production. Just though it might be an interesting project to build your own "flying saucer" :)

Help! photos, diagrams, etc required for Himmelstürmer

hello, I need some diagrams or sketches or photos of the german Himmelstürmer. If you have scale or measurements, that would be even better. one sounds like a simple enough device, and I would like to make it as a fun project. and post it up as an ible. all I know is that it consisted of two pulse jets and fuel tank(s). one small jet pointed down and was attached to the front of the user, the other larger one pointed at a downwards angle. fuel was stored on the front of the person. the engines did not run long enough to heat up, so there is no heat protection. it was used by throttling the engines, which would push the wearer into the air and forwards, allowing jumps of 60 meters distance and up to 50 feet height. I just need details of the, well, the entire device. the attached picture is just an artist impression of the device. I have no idea how to mount it to the user in a non-permanent way, and I need dimensions and such to allow it to be safe. I really don't want to make a device for an ible that could blow up the user. Thanks!

long range radio control flying

Hello all...I was looking in at the discussions of the possibility of long range radio control airplane operation and can make a few comments drawn from my research into the topic, with my opinions directed toward the USA market area ; First, Americans are bound by Federal Communications Commission regulations so we must abide by them or risk steep fines or legal trouble if caught. Second, the frequencies assigned by the FCC for radio control hobby use are already allocated, so modifications to your control systems in terms of frequencies could be illegal. Third, the maximum output for radio systems in the hobby is 1000mw (1 watt), which will easily control your miniature aircraft out to 1 to 2 miles, where you will need a video camera, transmitter, reciever and viewing device to even keep track of it ! There are several manufacturers that are way ahead of most of us here - offering pre made systems that are plug and play (no head scratching needed) . Search "FPV systems" on your computer and you'll find them. Bear in mind that to use these systems in America, you will need to obtain an amateur radio (ham) operator license to be legal (again, so if you get checked, you won't get in big trouble with the Federal Government ). I'm still looking into it myself, but if you want to see a good example of a really sharp Canadian who has a handle on this, search " VRflyer" on YouTube. He started doing this quite a few years ago and has some great video of his projects and results !

Knex Flight

Seeing as knex is light, strong and flexible, and most importantly, using rods, I beleive it would be feesable to build a Knex 'glider'. After seeing how gliders are made, it could be possible to build a lightweight spacframe wing out of knex, and make it fly using clingfilm as its 'skin'. An extra boost of gliding power would come from a clingfilm propeller, powered by the very fast and smal, solar motor. Do you think it is possible to make something like this glide 10 metres?
