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
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
