The drafting phase of the thesis project is just about done. Certainly the design will be tweaked here and there along the way. I already know for a fact that the center shaft needs to be about twice as long. (I wonder if I can get a ladder to measure the exact distance somehow…) I’ve decided to hold of on piecing together the mechanical apparatus though until I get the missing pieces and exact measurements. I’d really like to get started on the wooden wing frame – just as soon as I get a good sheet of plywood to clamp to. Hopefully things will start rolling this weekend.
