Standard OmniWing

The OmniWing

Designed in the early 1970's as a distance competition wing.  The OmniWing is a fast flier with good stability and a good glider ratio.  There are some steps that are pretty challenging with the folding process, but if you master them, you will have an extraordinary wing indeed.

The Advance OmniWing employs upwards to 4 to 8 sheets of paper to build and I have spent up to 4 hours on a single wing.  Sporting a wing span of 20 inches and speeds that allows it to fly in winds makes it a perfect outdoor soaring wing.  It takes a big building for indoor flight and it is a terrifying thing to see.  To the left is an example of an advanced wing.

Origamni

The Origami OmniWing- "The Origamini"

Click Here for a version of the OmniWing built Origami style.  No Tape, No Cutting.  It took several years until I figured out this method.  It looks a bit odd, but actually uses many of the steps of the OmniWing, minus the Tape and Cutting!  And you can fold it up and store it away in your shirt pocket and have it ready to fly when the time is right.
