MocOlympics Round 1 - Wind (and wind etc)
This of course goes in the wind category. But it also has a little wind-up feature to make the wings flap...poorly :)
About this creation
Yes, I know hang gliders have one fixed wing but flapping wings was the first thing I thought of and sadly I'm not one to "kill my darlings".


If it where a simple fixed wing glider the little fig would have nothing to worry about, now it's more challenging.


Smoke and mirrors: Wind-up mechanics are simple, the vertical bar makes the horizontal bar tilt from left to right thus making one wing go up and the other down...at least while the fig was fixed to a more stable brick :)

To see the failure in action please check out the video:


By the way those motors are a pain to wind and the you get 6 seconds of whirr-whirr-whirr.

One of my favs here! Excellent work creating the feeling of the category, it really gives the impression of the glider lifting, and flying off the cliff. Congrats and good luck in round 2!

And additional congrats from me. I instantly loved your vig, not because of the mechanics (though that's really cool), but because it's a clean little MOC of very fine proportions.

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor Excellent build! Ya know, I actually saw two guys in a cow pasture (flat lands mind you) setting up their hang gliders. I was a bit confused as to what they were doing but to each their own. Maybe they were cow surfing. LOL
Thank you! Wonderful, I would have loved to see that! Maybe the methane creates strong winds...of some sort...

The SNOT landscape is nice, it has texture and is very detailed.The little function is just a delightfully, delicious icing on the cake.
