Tumbling Wing With News Print

I wanted some walkalong glider meetups so I drew up a newsprint design (based on a John Collins design). Ottawa Citizen’s Bruce Deachman covered the project and the design was printed as a cutout on Jan 8th (Web version: Winged wonders: Paper plane meetup lands in Ottawa). The Ottawa Citizen also published their own version of the instructions for the Tumbling Wing. The kickoff event was also covered by Alan Neal of CBC Radio and Ed Hand of 1310 News.

I had so much fun I decided to make my own foam walkalong glider design called I♥U Glider (hackaday, buy a foam glider) and a flying business card.

Below are pictures and video from the walkalong glider meetups (Atomic Rooster, ArtEngine, Canadian Aviation and Space Museum, Arts Court Theater and a quick drop in to Hub Ottawa).


Preparation for Walkalong Glider Events

I was thrilled that Phil Rossoni was coming up from Boston for the event so I wanted to make sure we had good venues to practice and show the various designs.

Here are some video and pictures from my adventures of testing out some of the planes and the venues.
