TECH GEEK (author)  Dante90306 years ago

I'm not sure maybe cutting up a 2-litter soda bottle?

try modifying the tail... add surface area to the tail. you could also add 1 - 2 additional tail(s) similar to the A-10 warthog's tail. or even 3 tails 1 in the middle, 2 on either end of the rear stabalizer.

Wow, this is a really cool Instructable, I just wish I could get mine to fly,lol. I used a lego propeller for mine and put extensions from a plastic bowl to help it out.

I think it's a neat idea. So the guy "SHOUTED" It is his first instructable after all, give someone time to figure things out. At least he isn't using net speak like "ur" or "gr8t."

This looks a really good idea. It would be nice to see a video of it flying, and even nicer if you DIDN'T SHOUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH IT.

YEAH IT IS VERY ANNOYING IF YOU DO IT! (lol)
