Mini Fantastic Foam Flyer at Butts Brow, Eastbourne

We went to Eastbourne (Butts Brow SE slope) to fly our slope soarers but sadly the wind had done a runner. No wind. The new Mini FFF would love it! New Mini Fanttastic Foam Flyer What a view! 2 Wildthings looking out over Eastbourne from Butts Brow So Aos fetched it from the dashboard & I put a few hundred winds in and gave it a test flight. It flew straight but down so I gave one side of the tailplane a tweak upwards (this is because of my time flying RC, on reflection I should have twisted one of the wind tips – called washout). On the second go … Continue reading

End of Easter Term Email

I sent a letter to staff at my school at the end of term: Hi Ground Dwellers, I have news from the sky! Mr W & I have been running a club at lunch & after school on Thursdays for KS3 students, building little model free flight aeroplanes and have now got about 8-10 students coming along regularly and get this – about half of them are girls, yes, girls! Some of you have heard bits and pieces about the club, called Flight Club, (we have rules but no one talks about them) through the grapevine & the school’s Facebook page, I thought I’d give you guys & gals a … Continue reading

The Turning Point

Feel like we made progress this week! The Fantastic Foam Flyer design had not been performing like the internet said it would and although the kids are very happy with their planes I know they’ll be even more thrilled if the planes go up and fly around properly!. I decided it was time to get tough with the plane so I took the tailplane off and glued it back on with a few degrees of up and cut a slice in the rudder and bent it to one side and glued it in position. Testing our free flight planes When testing in the hall at lunch the plane landed on … Continue reading

Hall Flying Shenanigans

We took our Flight Club One gliders to the hall for a play after school today and filmed some of the action.  These gliders are built using Depron foam, 1/8″ x 3/8″ strip balsa, glue gun & Blu Tack. All of the student’s gliders fly well (which is quite amazing in some cases!).  Mr W managed to get his to fly rather trick circles for a guaranteed catch each time but the one that stole the show was Sid’s glider (thrown by Mr W in the video) – well done Sid! Most of the students on the club are in year 7 but we have a couple in year 8 … Continue reading

Flying my FatYak in the Playground

I finally did it! I’ve been meaning to fly at school for years so on the first windless day in weeks I took to the skies. Primary playground to the left of me, building to the right, nursery playground in front & a nippy model to keep under control… I didn’t do anything fancy but did manage to land it safely! Another technology that debuted during the 2012 London Olympics was the Open Water Gate for the swimming marathon. (Aren’t you tired just thinking about it?) Previously, times were just given at the start and stop of the race. But now swimmers wear wrist transponders that respond to cheap nfl jerseys … Continue reading
