Knex Glider

About: Knex builder here at Instructables. I build Guns, and, Roller Coaster. I currently build about 2-3 guns a month. I strive to post quality as well as quantity. If you have any ideas for a gun for me to try ou...

This is my new working glider. I believe this is the first working glider ever to be posted to instructibles. It is a very simple design but very affective. This new little design could change the knex gun world forever producing a more efficient bullet that uses less force and will go farther. It can get ranges of 20 feet with a light throw. Feel free to build. I would love to see a knexer put this into a knex gun.

    It's cool but I don't think it would be sufficient as a bullet. If it were, it would have to be used as a single-shot. I just don't think it would be very practical.

    Well I was bored and started making paper airplanes and I stared thinking and it hit me make something that could fly out of knex I just threw it together and started the agarvating process of tweaking and I finally got it to fly so I figured why not post it i haven't really gave it much thought as far as a gun but your right it would have to be single shot and it would be slow if you could somehow make a light grenade then it would be useful
