Hand Propeller Flyer

Introduction: Hand Propeller Flyer

About: I like to tinker and build things that seem fun to do.

I love when my son comes to visit me on the weekends.  We always come up with something to build together.  So in this instructible we came up with a quick toy.  We took a 1/8th inch dow about 7 inches long and HOT GLUED a model airplane propeller to it.  Then we added a little heat shrink to it to give it a little weight and grip.  Please see the video.  This is so simple, inexpensive and super fun.  We played catch with it.  If the receiving person misses it, the point goes to the one passing it.
