CSGOG Flying UFO + Animation Praxinoscope New Propellers for my styrofoam planes 3 months ago   12:44

CSGOG Flying UFO + Animation Praxinoscope. Charity Shop - Gold or Garbage? Annoyed with the Praxinoscope, I knew I had one already but I thought this one was different but it was just different brand packaging, worse still it is in poor condition with the silvering coming off the mirror. On top of that the Flying UFO met my usual expectations for a RC helicopter type thing in a charity shop and needs the LiPo replacing.

Most interesting finds ..... too bad the reflector panels were messed up .... the UFO would be fun if you can get it flapping again!!! Raggy
You only want to pay a pound for most stuff and so do I but unfortunately most charity shops spend alot of time on the web on EBay and come up with ridiculous prices. Sue Rider has really raised there prices and Oxfams been doing it sevral years now. I hardly ever get a bargin at a charity shop theses days. Car Boot sales are just as bad most of the time.

Hi Grandad. B&Q sell a range of aerosol paints, made by Rust-Oleum, one of which is a silver mirror finish ! Whilst it may not be worth repainting the one you've got, considering you have a good duplicate, it may be worth checking out for future prodjects ? Each tin costs £4.50.
Do you use a dedicated closet to store all the things you buy? I have my room full of stuff i've disassembled :)

New Propellers for my styrofoam planes CSGOG Flying UFO + Animation Praxinoscope 3 months ago   06:29

I have had several questions about the propellers I made for my Styrofoam Plate planes and recently I found a toy in the bargain store that had plastic propellers that looked like they might work so I tried them out. The electric plane worked quite well. The rubber band plane probably needed a slightly larger propeller. Both planes needed better trimming to improve performance and trying to launch with one hand an hold the camera with the other was quite a challenge.
In addition the test site I chose was surrounded by water and I finished the session covered in mosquito bites so not very happy.

I have grouped these styrofoam plate gliders into their own playlist here https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA5a2xPRSrB03ITop_TpKAtz3FxxFOc7R
The original basic glider video is here https://ai-tube.com/videoai/3wFptWTOscD
Rubber Band Power version is here https://ai-tube.com/videoai/r50KG5acdsR
Electric version is here https://ai-tube.com/videoai/J5i-JpE1ZF0

The width and length of the plane were just based on what the biggest section was that I could cut from the plates. The coffee stirrer is 17cm long. Each wing is 15.5cm long and 6cm wide. The tail is 12cm tip to tip and 3cm wide

The main components are:
Styrofoam plate
Wooden coffee stirrer
Short length of solder or similar as a balance weight
Propellers from "Wrist Shooter and Spinner" toy - You would get better results buying a proper propeller for small electric planes online.

Rubber power
Plastic jewelry bead for the bearing
Short plastic tube - mine came from a hand wash bottle pump

Electric power
This motor came from a vibrating toothbrush or you might try a pager motor. I have lot's of old OralB Pulsar toothbrushes that I have saved over the years. However I would not buy the toothbrush just to get the motor, they are expensive toothbrushes and you can get better more powerful motors for much LESS money if you buy online from somewhere like eBay or Amazon. I suggest you search for "3.7V Coreless Motor"

SuperCapacitor - Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercapacitor
The supercapacitors I used came from Maplin Electronics. I am not endorsing these products I am just answering the questions people have asked.
Here's an eBay link for a 2.7v 10F supercapacitor I bought that cost me £5.66 for 2 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251694354652
Here is a great video demonstration by Electric Experiments Roobert33 of Capacitor and superCapacitor https://ai-tube.com/videoai/MtbmeFpTA8H
