Sorry, did it again!

Hi..

One is supposed to grow clever with age, guess I´m the exeption for the rule.

Once again I was convinced to do some flying-stuff at our local church.
This time more specific, some thing for both girls and boys. Boys- no problem. Girls... what to do?

This is what I came up with.
A 9-inch ws butterfly made from 3mm depron.
Some twisting in the wing and it flies allmost like a real one.

On top of that a BAE Hawk from the same materials.

Enjoy

Ruben

This is very nice. I have been playing with some foam board also. Nice medium to work with and surprisingly durable.

Very cool indeed. I would love to see how the butterfly flies. My daughter (5yrs old) would love it.

Here´s a little video.

Not the best. It´s difficult filming and throwing at the same time.
Hope it gives some ideas about how this butterfly flies..


Butterfly (0 min 14 sec)

Thx for posting the vid Ruben. Looks like a great glide. Looks like some form of weight as the head right in get. What are you using? Was this your design or did you follow an existing plan?
I love it!
