Maybe you've seen the paper airplane with three straws intersecting at the middle (Ceneter of Gravity); one vertical, one lateral and one longitudinal to demonstrate the 3 axes of flight for yaw, pitch and roll respectively. Easy to make and great to use for axes of flight concept. Sign in to vote! Posted 2/5/2010 1:34pm William P. NeylonTechnology Education teacher & Dean in NYC Public High School (9 - 12) Bone up on Bernolli's Principle as it relates to the physics of lift on an airfoil - You can make an inexpensive wind tunnel from a clear acrylic tube with a variable, 3 speed, or single speed fan at one end - Then suspend a small section of an airfoil connected to a pivot (light hinge) w/interchangeable counterweight attached into the wind tunnel - Turn on fan observe rising wing section and play with changing the weight vs. wind speed from fan - Have fun, hope this helps Sign in to vote!
