    could use some work ill try to find the charger for my phone so i can make a video of my home made banshee of halo ( flys very well )

    Awsome plane. Just a helpfull suggestion, maybe put the battery farther back? This should even out the c.o.g(center of gravity). And also maybe angle the back elevators up to give more lift. 5 stars.

    As of now it can't quite keep itself in the air but I plan on getting a lighter battery and possibly a stronger motor and with any luck it should be able to fly!

    Thanks for the suggestion! With the huge selection of motors out there I was quite sure what kind to get :) I'll look into it

    this is awesome! i made one sort of like this out of a cheap toy hovercraft, a straw, paper for the wings, and tape. it was so cool and would actually sustain flight as long as the infrared controller was in range! i was going to post an ible but the motor fell apart and i couldn't fix it. if i can get another hovercraft i'll make one.

    if it can fly but not long much...try using as kite..string and wind and i think the motor would help stabilize the flight anyway XP...looks fun

    Ya, cool idea that be epic! I had thought about running along side it as it flies and holding its battery attached to it by long light weight wires so that it would wieght less :D

    Ya, it didn't stay in the air for long but it looks as though with a little more umph from the battery it might actually fly! (I'm just glad that it didn't burst into a million pieces :) )
