Another flight with the Rubber Snakes really can fly ? - Real Flying 5 months ago   08:10

Another flight with the Rubber Band Biplane Ridley's Sky Touch II. The long term plan is to put an electric motor on one of these, maybe with a 10 second timer or maybe make it RC.

Interesting! Thank you.

I'm with Doyle Blevins on this one, it's just crying out for a small motor and capacitor ( 10 second timer system ), RC gear, even small would weigh a fair bit and might spoil it's lovely floating low wing loading flight, the 10 sec gear would have it flying about the same without the ages spent winding it up each time.

yes flies really well used to have lots of fun as a small boy playing with these sadly the option of fitting a motor was simply not possible back then ! look forward to seeing how you manage it !

AWESOME Grandpa !!! Love this model and I wanna buy one !!
Very cool flights !!! And I also think it could take off from the ground as well !!
And nice idea to convert it to a rc model !!
See you in another GREAT video Grandpa !!! You really rocked it 😎!!!!

Would a toothbrush motor with a capacitor fly it as a free flight model?
That would be a cool project, to convert one of these to RC. I was thinking of doing something similar, but my last V911 Receiver just died yesterday. 😥

Snakes really can fly ? - Real Flying Another flight with the Rubber 5 months ago   06:16

Content description: Chrysopelea is also known by its common name "flying snake." It climbs using ridge scales along its belly, pushing against rough bark surface of tree trunks, allowing it to move vertically up a tree. Upon reaching the end of a tree's branch, the snake continues moving until its tail dangles from the branch's end. It then makes a J-shape bend, leans forward to select the level of inclination it wishes to use to control its glide path, as well as selecting a desired landing area. Once it decides on a destination, it propels itself by thrusting its body up and away from the tree, sucking in its abdomen and flaring out its ribs to turn its body into a "pseudo concave wing",all the while making a continual serpentine motion of lateral undulation parallel to the ground to stabilise its direction in midair in order to land safely.
