The Egg Carton Glider
Return to the Flying wing Web site:

OK... get that egg carton....styofoam!
Cut off the top with a pair of sissors.
Cut off the lip
Hey we have a wing!....
Now you can cut the Marske Planform..... slight taper ratio.
Add your weight.. I use welding rod taped on but a penny will do just fine!
First flight..... check that weight and balance....youngsters will have a tough time throwing the glider at first... yes it takes practice! This glider will actually fly upside down as well... have fun! And if you really want a challenge explain how the airfoil produces a positive pitching moment!.....and yes it also produces a positive pitching moment when flying upside down.
