My version of Jag Betty’s The Grandad Mk 2 Pizza Tray Glider

Jag Betty made another glider from pizza trays and named it ‘The Grandad Mk 2’ so I will have to make my own version and see if it flies.

If you have a question it is probably worth reading this video description first because the answer may already be here. To help you find my videos I made two search guides or or checkout my playlists page

Jag has a habit of deleting some of his older videos that are not part of his core channel topics so his plane videos have gone but you can still visit his channel here

Main components

Polystyrene Pizza Tray
Wooden Clothes Peg

Clearly many parts of the world do not have polystyrene pizza trays. They are just the packaging that my local supermarkets use for pizzas. I use them because they are free and would otherwise be thrown away. You could use any polystyrene or styrofoam packaging you can find or even buy foam board from model shops. The foam I am using is about 5mm thick.

Main Tools

Hot Glue Gun
Sharp knife

Filmed using

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
