Flying things are still very much on my agenda, and towards this end I decided to try out a simple VTOL platform to see how well they run!

Turns out pretty well, but algorithms for working out gyroscopic precession and stabilization got my mind tired. Today I finish the code and do a test. I should be able to get it on video and post possibly tomorrow!

Kinda shoddy I know, but these are just prototypes of prototypes :-D A good excuse!

What do PVC pipes and cooking oil cans have to do with flying?

.... Well, as it turns out, everything! Almost anything can fly, as long as it exhibits some form aerodynamics, which happens often with my configurations of cans and carton boxes and plastic pipes. I do it for the fun of it, and it has thus far provided great excitement for me and numerous spectators! Join the fun athttp://karne-mpya.blogspot.com/

Before we fly, lets make something that flies!
 I used plastic sheet to shape braces for the wings, which would be made using fabric/cloth, then coated as usual with resign
 Ok so we have the frame, lets line it with cloth

 Ah! Lets form the wing
