Cleaned up my basement, and ran across this:
My 7yo boy talked me into building it, and it’s been fun, slowly putting it together:
Anybody else here ever make one?
I’ve made a few. I had one go OOS (out of site), which is a double-edged sword. On the one hand it’s a great achievement for a rubber powered airplane, on the other hand you may never see it again after putting all that work into it. I never found mine.
I didn’t even know about the OOS thing at the time. I just made it for fun, not competing. My Nephew actually launched it from the ground (road), and we were a expecting it to come back down, but it just kept circling higher and higher!
I was so bummed! Then someone at a hobby shop congratulated me. I’ve never had another one come even close, but they are pretty cool, and fun to fly. Need A LOT of space though.
