First get the plans: Axworthy Flying Ghost
|We're using a (Dayton Gearmotor, AC, 60rpm) fromGrainger with a 4" pully|
and a round belt fromMcMaster-Carr (last year we used a box fan motor)
|mounted on a 2x4.Nylon kite string is used as the transport line, or fishing line.|
The rest is a matter of trial & ERROR!.
|Remember; "Eveything works in theory." Once built much testing at low elevation is a good idea. It makes repairs easier.|
|Lots of bike wheels and 1x4 make up the "guides".|
|We even shot a video of the system: Axworthy-Test01.mpg and Axworthy-Test02.mpg|
