    It seems totally improbable that something so ridiculous-looking could ever fly, but it does!

    Awesome, flies great!

    1)If you use enough tape for weight it rotates and also it looks like a gyroscope ring
    2)Video is on the way
    3)Thank you!

    1) Thanks for the response.
    2) notify me when you put the video, please.

    There is a video on YouTube titled "Hoopster Part 1" & "Hoopster Part 2". The author there made the unit 4 times larger and made it into an RC format. Very Impressive.

    Doesn't it work better if you just have the paper tube with a thick leading edge?

    i think this is a weird but cool plane

    if u add weight to the straw by putting a bamboo giant toothpic in it, it flies further
