What You'll need-
Materials (All PVC fittings are 1/2 in)
11 ft of 1/2 SCH 40 PVC (1 long rod of 10 ft and 1 stick of 1 ft is recommended)
1 Bright Orange/Green T-Shirt (Red and blue just seems so... played out)
2 PVC end caps
1 PVC Male adapter
1 PVC Female adaptor tee coupler
3 PVC Tee couplers
First, cut your rod of PVC into
6- 1 ft sections
1- 4 ft section
Now Epoxy on a male adaptor to the 4 ft section.
Epoxy on a tee to the other end of the same rod.
Epoxy 2 1 ft rods to the remaining holes in the tee.
Epoxy the end caps to the end of said rods.
Now time to assemble the base.
Follow the picture to epoxy the base together. It shouldn't be too hard to follow. Make sure the threaded tee is in the middle, and as straight as you can get it.
Let those dry for 24 hours.
Now screw in the pole to the base.
Bam, you got the frame.
Feed the pole through a T-Shirt, and use some wire or string to hold the sleeves to the end. I used picture wire, because I didn't have string at the time.
Old Pokemon poster. I still love it. And my bulletin board of origami.
Make sure you also tie BOTH sleeves. I didn't when I took the photo. It makes it much sturdier.
Hopefully this'll make CTF rounds a bit more extreme, running around with a 5 foot flag pole.
* keef, silencer, and DX will get the joke.
