While working on my Ultralignt FCG I got to thinking that with a little thought I could build a flying crank using very basic hand tools and a simple designee from inexpensive, easily available parts. I couldn’t resist the challenge and I’m quite pleased with the results.

Since this was something of a pilgrimage into the unknown I felt I should incorporate most of the mystical elements required for a successful DIY project including duck tape, glue, coat hanger, hammer and sticks.

All of the parts are from Home Depot and the swap meet. None of the dimensions are very important. None of the parts are “special” so feel free to improvise (that’s what I did). No special tools are required (I used tools I thought most people would have, could borrow or could buy for very little money)

The finished product
