    It seems totally improbable that something so ridiculous-looking could ever fly, but it does!

    There is a video on YouTube titled "Hoopster Part 1" & "Hoopster Part 2". The author there made the unit 4 times larger and made it into an RC format. Very Impressive.

    Doesn't it work better if you just have the paper tube with a thick leading edge?
