Make something that flies through the air!

We want to see model rockets, RC airplanes, drones, ball launchers for your pet, and so on. Projects related to untethered movement through the air are eligible.

Make a real-life physical object that you designed using Tinkercad, and you'll be eligible for the special Judges prize!

Keep safety in mind. Any project deemed too dangerous (such as, but not limited to: weapons, throwing knives/stars, combustion-fueled projectile projects like potato cannons and similar) will not be allowed.

The Make it Fly Challenge is closed.
