Posted:I made a pair of fire wings for a performer once. He wore them as he flew across a large hanger (strapped to a pulley riding on a sloping, taut wire rope that went from one corner of the hanger to the diagonally opposite corner. He had a foot control that would flap the wings.
The wings were framed of 3/16 steel rod, with 1/8 steel "feather" lines. Glass refractory rope was wired on the frame to hold the fuel. A 1x1/8 flatbar "backpack" harness held the wing hinges and was secured to him with nylon webbing with a quick release buckle.
A sheet aluminum fire wall was fitted between the wings and the back harness.
I made the wings for $150 and they lasted through the life of the show with no problems. They were easy to make, but you need welding equipment.
