Designs on Flying



















 I call it marvellous,  wonderful and  beautiful . Master J calls it a discus launch glider and says it doesn't fly that well, that next time he'll add ailerons in addition to the rudder and elevators of this plane. Next time he says he'll increase the dihedral so it will be more responsive.




I still declare it excellent and amazing. You see Master J designed and built this one from scratch, totally unassisted for his Design and Technology subject at school.










What's not to love about that!

Great shots, the concentration on his face as he is launching it is wonderful to see. Quite an achievement to build it himself.

I am surprised you throw this in the air like that. The pictures are very sharp for such movements.

Greetings,

I'd call it wonderful, marvelous, and beautiful, too! :)

Beautiful captures, Karen.

I've been so busy and feel badly that I haven't had the time to go read up on all my favorite blogs as of late. And boy it sure looks as though I've got some catching up to do here. But can I just tell you, I'm loving that I have the time to now.

Brought back wonderful memories of my Ben (now 20) designing and creating in Year 11&12 Engineering... he's now in 3rd year Engineering at QUT.
