Small SWF movie showing the animation of the wing frame I'm trying to improve for myself.
Basic frame idea is from instructables.com, I added the string.
Pull on that and they open, so no need for the silly armbands and flapping your arms to open and close them (which looks absolutely retarded). The string can be hooked to a belt or something to keep them open and you'll still have your hands all for yourself.

Next step is a full size model, probably in balsa wood because that's the cheapest and easiest to work with I can think of :p

Did I mention I'm a wing addict? I LOVE wings.
imakewings.co.uk and danielle-hurley.com/costume_AOD.html are my 2 favs, sadly I can't afford the gorgeous animatronic wings and I lack the technical background to make them, so I'll settle for this version... FOR NOW! hehehehe

I see mention of the wings auto-closing... how exactly would that work?

They don't auto close, I have to do that manually.

Well, that's why you would put some rings on the end of the strings you use to pull them open and make some hooks on your belt or something, or put the rings around your fingers so you can hold them open :)

What did you use for the joints? Looks like hinge brackets

On this tiny wing frame I just used some really small nuts and bolts, since it was just a test to see if it would actually work.
I poked some holes in the cardboard and forced them through, that's all.
