Walk along Glider!? Happy Building!


hey guys welcome another great day
again this is from the comments section somebody asked me why don’t I make the
walk along glider! walk along glider is a lightweight slow
flying model aircraft designed to be kept aloft a controllable slope soaring
in the rising edge and weighted by the pilot who walks along with the glider as
it flies usually holding a paddle or surface. Hands or even the forehead can be
used to create an updraft. This type of soaring differs from other types of
slope soaring, in that the orographic lift or Hill is following the plane as it
flies in the air and does no other wind is required. Ground effect should not be
confused with ridge lift while explaining how walk along gliders stay
up. Ground effect involves a horizontal surface, ridge lift requires a sloping
surface. In ground effect the air does not have to move relative to the ground
whereas ridge lift requires the wind to be blowing horizontally against the
ridge. Walk along gliders are sustained and controlled in the ridge lift
produced by the moving paddle. Did you know that Dr. Paul
McCready is called the father of human powered aviation. Josephine Grant of
Beverly Hills filed the first patent of a walk along glider and
was granted it in 1955. Super gliders are kangroo like small tree dwelling animals who can glide up to 150 feet! wow ! I hope you enjoyed the video. If you did, Please do subscri be, share, comment and like! Till next time, happy building! 🙂
