Vertical Flyer

Vertical Flyer

Up, up and away! As the objects enter the air column, notice how different versions react to the same amount of force from the air.

Intended Use

User approaches the exhibit and selects a paper cone and scissors. The user then makes their own custom propeller by cutting any design they like into the cone. Once the cone is ready to be tested the user presses the green button to turn on the fan for a preset length of time (0-128 second range) and places their cone in the air column. For further adjustability there is a secondary black switch that gives the user wind speed control options of High and Low.

Test out different flyer designs to try and achieve different flight patterns. Discover which designs fly highest, accelerate fastest, or stay buoyant in the air column.
