Cardboard Flying Body KFB-3 Prototype

KFB from mixed Serbian-English name "Karton Flying Body" (on English it would stay "Cardboard Flying Body). This I made during 2010 summer holiday. Very simple. It showed some flying characteristics in first two throws. Also called "The twelve" for the number that originally was on the upper cardboard piece. Last two photo's are from 3rd testing consisted of  just two flights.

    That looks interesting.

    I don't suppose you have a template you could upload for other people to experiment with?

    Thanks. There is no template, I just improvised. Actually great deal of my work with this models is improvisation, a search for a successful combination of casually found elements and "in a moment" ideas. One day, maybe, who knows...
