In 2017, Red Bull Flugtag took their event to Nashville, TN for the second time. We hand crafted a pizza flight machine that soared from a launch pad towering over the Cumberland River.

The Challenge: How do you build a hang glider?

In a competition that features flying mustaches and banjos, we found ourselves getting down to the bare bones of what really makes a personal flyer soar. We settled on creating a Rogallo wing. This craft was made from hollow aluminum, tension wire, and a custom pizza fabric.
