sail plane made from paper clips

Who would be interested in an instructable about how to make a working glider made from paper clips, food wrap, and a small engine? I was going to do this for the launch it challenge but I didnt have time to do it.

Interested, yes, but if it has an engine, why call it a glider?
Pat Sowers (author)  Kiteman10 years ago
because my plan was to use the engine to get it going and when the power would run out it would glide.

Maybe the "engine" activates the "launcher"? (I tried)
Sounds amazing. About how big are we talking? And I'm assuming a rather small electric motor? Batteries on board, or connected to plane and held in hand, for a "swing around" kind of plane, like these? Looking forward to seeing your instructable!
