It's a good instructable, but you should say to use a short rubber band and a long paper clip. Like this

use a loom band with a big paper clip it goes 10-30 meters depending on the size of the paperclip

 Sorry, but your pics are blurry, and it is so simple , no one needs to be a member to view all steps on one page. Try using a macro setting on your camera (if it has one), and use this as ammunition for a semi-auto gun or something. This has a lot of potential; I used it on a paper airplane.

Rawns (author)2008-01-08

Tried it - may have been the lacky band but it went flying for all of an inch. Next time, I will try a bigger band and a bigger paper clip...

pretty good except for the fact that it bends the paper clip if the rubber band is too strong ~zeda
