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.

How do you know that everyone knows this? Do you know everything? I'm pretty sure you don't. I personally did know a trick similar to this, but hadn't used it for a while, so it was a good refresher. Anyway its better than the standard slingshot style. I give your comment a 0.01 out of 100.

Thanx, I learnt how to do this ages ago but forgot almost instantly. BTW my freind Shaun made a pen-ink shooting crossbow gun thing out of a couple of texta lids, one hollow texat and a rubber band.

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.
