Default "homebuilt" rubber band powerd airplane

hi all you flyers! in my past thread, someone told me about a homebuilt rubber band plane. i decided to make one, except im not going to be running to the store, im using my old sky fly's plastic tube to replace the balsa. ill use cardboard for the rest. but i always thought, how am i going to find a prop?(i broke mine on my old sky fly). check this out, ill give you guys pictures when its done.

Yes that's very cool . Wouldn't take the stress of a electric R/C motor but o k for rubber power. I think sheet plasic twisted to prop shape with heat would be just as good.

They don't get much simpler than that.
