I've been wanting to do a puddle jumper for awhile and finally got to it.
The end result is pretty great: Very stable and I can get them to fly close to 20 ft high.
You will need:
1 Hub (2 bladed, 3 bladed or 4 bladed)
2-4 blades depending on your hub
Also, I'm posting right and left handed hubs and blades:
- Right (rt) handed for counter-clockwise spinning flight
- Left (lft) handed for clockwise spinning flight
Make sure your hubs and blades match or the air foil will be wrong for the direction of spin.
To fly it, hold it between the tips of the fingers of your your left or right hands (depending on which hub and blades you printed) and the base of the palm of your other hand and get it spinning by pushing out with the hand touching with the finger tips and rolling it against the other hand. There's no need to toss it up. The faster you spin it the higher it will go.
I haven't tried 0.1mm resolution but it would likely work better.
Attach blades and peg into the hub
The blades go into the half circle holes and the peg goes into the square hole.
While gluing isn't required, I recommend it. Sooner or later those blades will pop out and go flying. I've lost 3 already!
Please use in a large area preferably outdoors. Also aim away from yourself, anything breakable or where it might get stuck.
