Toss It! Winners Announced Answered

All right, the winners of the Toss It! speed contest have been decided! We saw a lot of great entries and several good videos of successful, and not successful, flights. We love paper airplanes and were excited to see all of you get into them as well.

In determining the winners, some duplicate votes were thrown out and for the random winner we picked a short list of Instructables, taped them to planes, and the one that went the farthest won.

On with the winners!



Top Votes and Pageviews

The authors of these two Instructables will each receive the Air Instructables Flight Kit which includes decals and a pilot's license, and an Instructables robot t-shirt.

Some were over 30 seconds. Under 30 seconds were okay... and some didn't have the paper thing printed out. Yours was too long. It was over 30 seconds.

That was just theirs, for an example but not really.... Anyways...

It did say that. But it doesn't anymore... it said the video has to be at least under 30 seconds or something.

It was stated in the "how to enter" section. It should've been repeated elsewhere to be clearer, but the rule was always there. That said, yours wasn't disqualified for length anyway.

Congrats all.....I never could get mine to actually fly so I kind of gave up and didn't post it (that effectively shoots down any "late in life" career plans in building airplanes I suppose ;-)
