Does this fly far
Please don't do THIS, IT IS ANNOYING.
The ANNOYING CAPITALS or the project?
THE ANNOYING CAPITALS!!!!
I AGREE LOL
lol
can you use something else as the propellor
Yes I suppose you could...
like what though ?
http://www.sciencetoymaker.org/plane/propeller.htm<br><br>here is a link to a site that teaches you how to make a propeller, i used this it turned out pretty good.
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.
how long should the propeller be?
great looking, i didn't make it yet
i dont get the 3 straws
CAPS ARE FUN!!!!! Can you change that, it makes you sound like Billy Mays all the time
my plane keeps flying back and forth, what should i do
could you post a Video??? Btw very cool plane.
FYI to you people, I have edited some of the errors away...
THANKS. IT IS BETTER NOW.
i might try this with a smaller "box"
Darn too bad.. i was gonna make a plane out of foam =(... mabye i will try hhhmmm?........<br/>
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)
