From my experience as a kid in the 60s, the secret to accurate flight is to put 'differential tension' on to both sides of the rubber band, so the band spins in flight. In other words, if you ping the band on one side you hear a low note and on the other side you hear a high note.
cool i like it
i made it i just need a smaller rubber band
You need a #Bowslinger. Nice writeup, and very clear pics. Great Instructable!

A rubber band war was started in my school a while ago, and the paper wasps dont really sting me and i sell rubber bands and wasp ammo but took my little business "underground" so the princible wouldn't catch me.
