[Flugtag 2010] Come fly with me.. Lets fly, lets fly away...

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by jirf88, Jun 12, 2010.

  1. Right. So.



    I'm entering the flugtag. Anyone care to help come up with awesome ideas? The entry needs to be awesome enough to get selected, so I can build it and then fly it into Sydney Harbor.

    TO THE SKIES!

  7. Wheeeee.

    Non stressed and brittle shell allows death trap escape, probably have to reverse the differential (1:3, not 3:1), but it could work for a laugh. or end in a ball of flame. :)

    As the latest Engineers Australia promotion suggests; Make it Happen! Consider this the first half of the first iteration. :)

    Edit; a double layer of clingwrap would work, and a couple of lifevests tied to the frame would keep it buoyant.

  10. As a serious question jirf, is there really any rules on what is allowed, as in say water flotation, safety of the craft and occupant, e.t.c., or is it no rules, each to there own....

  11. Yeah, there are a few rules.

    I think the big ones are that it has to be buoyant, and the wing span can't be greater than 8m. Theres a few more regarding weight and team but I can't recall them atm.

  12. Cool, it may help you to get some serious ideas, if that is what you are seeking.

    Your first post should have read " drop into harbour " rather than "fly into harbour" ??....":LOL: :bolt:

    They sent me a box of Red Bull energy shots and an RC helicopter to make up for it.

    Shame though.
