I made it but unfourtunatly I didn't have a bike pump to connect it to so I modified it to be a paper dart!

You got my vote that's for sure.

Nice! I like how you adapt to your supplies. I believe you can also get a small bike pump at places like big 5 if you don't want to spend a lot of money. Thanks for the Vote!

Well, we don't have big 5 over here but as of last week I have access to all the big 5's in America...

I rolled an extra bit of paper around the nose cone and cut it like the handle of a dart and then threw it and it flew so well!

I found that if you covered the nose cone with sticky tape it did not dent as easily.

The last mod I did was before putting the nose cone on I rolled a piece of paper about an inch wide by 5 inches long and put that in the nose of the dart to give it a bit extra weight, it flew much straighter and further!
