Mindsets High Speed Flyer Electronic Kit

• Build a propeller driven flyer
• Create a flyer that uses a motor driven propeller to fly at high speed and watch it circle suspended on a line
• Learn about aerodynamics
• Build the flyer from 10 pieces

• Requires two AA batteries (not included, Order Code L43AL)

What can I create with this electronic kit?
Create this amazing flyer and watch it go. The flyer (manufactures code BIG 019) flies using a motor driven propeller and can travel at high speed. Suspend the flyer using thin line (not included) from a low tree branch or washing line and it will fly in circles. The flyer requires two AA batteries (not included, Order Code L43AL) and is suitable for ages 11 and over with adult supervision.

What does this teach?
The propeller pushes air backwards creating the forward movement of the flyer. All the components are small and close to the body of the flyer to create as little drag as possible and the long tail provides more aerodynamic stability. Experiment with different lengths for the body and tail and see what effect these changes have.
