Gyro Soda Bottle Plane Toy

I was discussing gliders with my brother in law and he described one he had. It rang a bell for me as I remembered seeing one on a YouTube video so as soon as I got home I searched it out and made my version. See the original for build details.

If you have a question it is probably worth reading this video description first because the answer may already be here. To help you find my videos I made two search guides or or checkout my playlists page

I have seen a lazy version in the shops in the style of a gun. You place the "projectile" at the front on a circular fixing and as you slide it up the barrel it stretches elastic bands,then you add the twists. When you fire the "weapon" it spins up the shaft as it is launched. I didn't buy one but it looked like fun

I also found this on Amazon X-zylo Gyro Launcher

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
