Build a model plane that has to fly 20m

  • #1
Hi all,
I have to build a model plane that has to fly 20m and has to fly through a holla hoop at the end that is upright. To do this, we can use any materials such as wood, paper etc.... Do you guys have ideas as to how to approach this??? I have been racking my brains abt this for weeks.........
Thanks :redface:

Elastic bands? Energy is stored in the band and is released, go to a model shop and I'm sure they will help you.

yeah i was thinking of using a rubber band to launch my plane to achieve accuracy and precision as well. however, i was wondering if wood, plastic or simply paper would serve as a good material for the body of the plane
