A homemade biplane that I made out of salvaged foam containers that cooking mushrooms are sold in! Hope you enjoy..
could use some work ill try to find the charger for my phone so i can make a video of my home made banshee of halo ( flys very well )
Awsome plane. Just a helpfull suggestion, maybe put the battery farther back? This should even out the c.o.g(center of gravity). And also maybe angle the back elevators up to give more lift. 5 stars.
Thanks! I'll try that out :D
does it fly well or at all?<br />

Get a Xmod motor from a rc car fast motor!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br />
Thanks for the suggestion! With the huge selection of motors out there I was quite sure what kind to get :) I'll look into it<br />
Your welcome look on ebay you should be able to at a chip kit for 4$ with motor in it or just a motor for chiper!!!!!!!!!<br />
this is awesome! i made one sort of like this out of a cheap toy hovercraft, a straw, paper for the wings, and tape. it was so cool and would actually sustain flight as long as the infrared controller was in range! i was going to post an ible but the motor fell apart and i couldn't fix it. if i can get another hovercraft i'll make one. <br />
Cool!!! That sound awesome, tell me if you ever get an ible up on it :D<br />
if it can fly but not long much...try using as kite..string and wind and i think the motor would help stabilize the flight anyway XP...looks fun<br />
Ya, cool idea that be epic! I had thought about running along side it as it flies and holding its battery attached to it by long light weight wires so that it would wieght less :D<br />
That is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks!<br />
<p>Your welcome :)<br /> <br /> Have you tried flying it?</p>
Ya, it didn't stay in the air for long but it looks as though with a little more umph from the battery it might actually fly! (I'm just glad that it didn't burst into a million pieces :) )<br />
Yeah, that's cool :) Haha, yeah that would've stunk
That is very good!<br /> Post an Instructable for it!<br /> And a video too!<br />
Thanks, will do!
