Flight Club Report For Week 11

finished fuselage with rubber strip attached

From week four we had been flying our planes testing to see in which ways they fly best. This week we started making a rubber powered plane. We started by using templates to cut out the parts.For this we used depron. We made many creases in the wing tips to make it a smoother aerofoil. We then used a balsa strip to make the wing rib and body. We creased  the wing four times and glued it onto the wing rib to form the aerofoil. After we glued on the wing tips, we connected the propeller onto the nose of the fuselage. We cut the rubber strip twice as long … Continue reading

Flight Club Report For Week 4

This week we made a depron version of the free-flight glider Flight Club One. We used the paper template and with a pen poked holes to show the points of the wing, flaps, fin and tail-plane. Then we joined the holes to give the outline. Then we cut them out. Next we made creases in the wing and flaps. We did this using a ruler to stop the depron from snapping. Then we made the body and wing rib from a balsa strip. We then used a glue gun and stuck the wing rib onto the wing making it bend. Then we added the flaps to the ends of the … Continue reading

Flight Club Report for Week 3

This week we finished off the free-flight glider Flight Club One. First we glued the wing onto the body/plane. We had to be careful not to put the wing to far to the front or to far to the back.  We finished by adding blue tack on the front point of the plane. This balanced the plane. Then the plane was finished. We had much fun flying our finished fliers in the hall. You had to throw the plane gently and horizontal for the best flight. Now, with all the talk of an endless stream of new Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) gadgets as well as an even bigger stream of wannabe Apple … Continue reading

Flight Club Report for Week 2

Today we continued making the free flight glider called Flight Club One. First we glued the tail-plane and the fin onto the end of the balsa strip, making the back of the plane. Then we glued the wing rib onto the wing. The wing rib bends the wing and creates lift. Then we left them to dry. This is where we got to. As of 2014, the cap cheap oakleys includes all streams of revenue. The calculation is based on a complicated formula, which often changes with each collective bargaining agreement between the players and the league. The NRA has also pushed 23 states to pass stand your ground statutes … Continue reading
