Foldable Glider

A contest against other classmates on who can make the best glider. But with a twist


To make the design more portable, the main wings as wel as the tail wing are made to fold away.  This is done by  unlocked the main wing an fold it backwards onto the tail. The tail fins fold down to complete the transformation.

The for the look of the glider I let myself be inspired by a dragonfly. some key features of the dragon fly is the big head and the small tail.

To keep the weight of the plane down everything the main body of the plane was made out of balsa wood. This was carefully shaped and sanded to the required form.  While keeping the location of the center of gravity in mind.
