Pretty cool. Why put weight on the back in the form of a solid ball of tape. I think you'd get more accuracy if, using the tape still, you gave it more of a typical dart 'tail', i.e. two perpendicular isosceles triangular wings, each bisected by the dart body axis and each other.

ive tried adding more tape to it but it either flips around or it turns on its side.

Hmm, just remembered a really easy way to make a blow dart. You need a shoe lace, a needle and a straw. Cut the shoelace about 1cm away from the plastic protective tube on the end, fray the lace string still attached to the plastic, and push a pin/sewing needle through the frayed side, so that it protrudes from the other side. Load into straw needle first, and get busy causing blindness, annoying holes in walls, etc.
