<p>Thanks for giving us this Instructable ! The grandson and I had a lot of fun launching these fantastic flyers . We made a plastic template from your pattern so we could trace flyers quickly onto cardboard. We made a bunch of them - most of which are now on roofs, in trees, or far off in parts unknown! </p>
This thing goes SO FAR!!!
