cut out from the pop can to make a propellers. make a small hole in the middle of the propellers and connect it to the electric motor

Step 5: Fishing line

tying the fishing line onto the airplane in the middle, make sure it is balance between the battery and the motor, you can also use AAA battery it will work the same. for more actions how the airplane work, please watch the video thanks

but how did make it to fly on weight 9 volt battery and weight motor?

Worked like a charm. It flew pretty fast too. We didn't use a pop can, but took a propeller off of a broken RC helicopter and it worked. Otherwise, we followed the instructions exactly. Project takes a little while, but is fun to watch the airplane spin around when it is all done.

Wow it won't fly ! it's too heavy, doesn't have any wings, and the batteries are not suitable.

I don't think it will fly.

I would try to make it........

Could this work if you used small button cells instead? Like a CR2032 maybe?
it could but the cr2032s might not be powerful enough for it to fly very far

NO, is Will it blend?
Can we microwave this?
Oh I didn't see that one yet!

haha: "Where is the microwave?!"
>< epic

and also dangerous; they should have a remote control to start the microwave :) especially when it has explosives inside.
Bender will make it bend.
Don't breathe this.
it will not fly....

Is it just me or is the plane hovering in most of those photos? Does Barq's contain some kind of anti-gravity property that I'm unaware of? If so, what about A&W?

Mmm can be applied to a plane to scale???

those one's of you people who think it's a trick, are extremely stupid 

the hole idea is to have this "plan"  hanging from the ceiling and when you turn the motor on it will start to spin around a center point (in a circle)   
and the gray wire is not attached to the batteries because if you have noted  he didn't use a switch  so if it was attached it will run 

but i guess you didn't read it to the end  thats in case you were not too stupid to read   .

somehow this instructable has 4.5 stars?
Think people are confusing your instructables for an actual flying plane, correct me if I'm wrong but what your trying to show how to build is a tether plane. The kind you used to be able to buy at toy stores and most likely now only at airport gift stores. All the weight is suspended by fishing line from a tether mounted on your ceiling. The prop turning would pull it through the air, the fishing line would guide it in a perpetual circle. So yes, doesn't really fly, but its got kinda like flying action. Still fun for little ones. Check out the picture.

hey guys. What is that gray cord connecting the electric motor and the battery? What is giving off the electric current, that grey wire or the copper wire?
the copper wire is keeping it sturdy while the grey wire gives and recieves current
is the almost c through wire or whatever the fishing line??????? this is so #$#$#$# confusing

i already hav a small plastic proppeler, is it ok? will it fly?
it probably will, as long as the blades are curved pretty much like this. if its a hobby airplane propeller it almost certainly would and so would a large-ish lego propeller

what kind of electric motor is that? and where do you acquire it?
Man, I just hackensacked my cat Limpy! And yes, he was already named Limpy cuzz he attacked a toy witch I had when I was younger. Although I can't remember which.
