GLIDER PROJECT - BASIC CONSTRUCTION

V. Ryan 2007

 

You are to design and make a simple glider similar to the one shown below.
Ensure that your design includes insignia (symbols) and a colour scheme. (See Following Pages)

 
   

A small perspex / plastic weight slots on to the nose of the glider. Without a small weight on the nose the glider will fall unceremoniously to the ground (see below). If the weight is correct the glider will ‘glide’ when carefully thrown with a small amount of force.

     
 

Both wings will need a support. High density polystyrene is a light but strong material suitable for this purpose. Double sided tape is ideal for fixing this part to the wing and fuselage.
