Klutz rubberband contest- K'nex

Now this has to be a competition we have a chance in. My immediate idea was for a plane, what do you reckon? Ideas welcome, and I may have a crack at it myself.

Knex don't fly would be my initial response. A catapult might work.

A model. But perhaps combining the two ideas?
a paper airplane catapult? Gotta keep it simple.

Did he say anything about weapons? Read the OP before you post.

yeah i really should. But i was kinda in a rush and i had to go somewhere.
So don't comment till you get back/have full info.
.......
What? I was just saying. Don't make a pointless excuse for a comment that was not needed.
APRIL FOOL!
Yes, you really are.

Lol.
knexguy (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
No, really? There goes my purposefully indicative suggestion in the post! Try reading -_-
oh ok. I thought you were referring to weapons. Anyways, the knex stuff that uses rubberbands that isnt a weapon are pinball machines.
knexguy (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
Again, READ MY SUGGESTION!
yeah, but i think that could be considered a weapon of sorts (technically), unless rubberbands only powered the propeller or something.
Yes, agreed.

I was thinking a sort of launcher that launches a plane! Like those toys you sometimes see where you pull the elastic band back, put your plane in the track, and pull the lever releasing the band, and sending the plane soaring. *Yes, that was my attempt to make a gun not sound like a gun*
knexguy (author)  yerjoking5 years ago
Lol, that's pretty much what I'm thinking.
