Skyaak DIY deuce: fun for dads and kiddos

My friend Tom popped over on the weekend to check out the Skyaak DIY deuce. Tom has been a Skyaak fan ever since we tossed a Model 3 around last summer and he was curious about the little DIY version.

After about 15 minutes, we had both built a DIY deuce…Tom decided to keep his plain Jane while I opted to decorate mine with Canada flag tape.  We were having so much fun that I neglected to take step-by-step photos. But I wanted to mention a couple of comments Tom made after we finished building our little gliders and had tossed them around the living-room for a while.

Tom was very pleased with how well the little gliders worked.  He got some really nice arc-shaped trajectories out of his unit, fully employing the ‘finger-flicker’ feature to his advantage.

He said that this would be a great activity for Dads and kids to do together.  He thought it was cool that the strange design really works as a glider and that it is so easy to control the flight path.  Tom suggested that we could create a game with a target…concentric circles like a dart board only bigger, with a cut-out hole in the center. A clean throw through the hole would be a bull’s eye! Once you have mastered accuracy from a certain distance, say 10 feet away, you would move further back for more of a challenge.

Tom built the ring-wings no prob.

I did manage to take a couple of shots…I am going to get a whole series next time somebody pops in to play.
