Step 1: Parts & Tools

Party Tray $3.50 from local store. I used the 16 inch party tray. Hair dryer motor $5.00 from Goodwill. I removed the motor from the hair dryer. Tools include a hot glue gun, torch, wire, and soldering iron.

Step 2: Step 1 Cutting Hole in Center of Tray.

I placed a metal container lid in the center of plastic tray and heated it up with the torch. It melted a perfect hole through the plastic.

Step 3: Step 2 Mounting the Motor.

I used hot glue to attach hair dryer motor to bottom of party tray and extended wire connections with wire and soldering iron. I connected the battery to the wires and we have lift off.

    Good idea on the Frisbee. .. I didn't have a frisbee on hand. I used a leftover party tray from New Years.
