sail plane made from paper clips Answered

Who would be interested in an instructable about how to make a working glider made from paper clips, food wrap, and a small engine? I was going to do this for the launch it challenge but I didnt have time to do it.

Interested, yes, but if it has an engine, why call it a glider?

because my plan was to use the engine to get it going and when the power would run out it would glide.

Maybe the "engine" activates the "launcher"? (I tried)
