Experiment 14: Paper Airplane Squadrons and Sharpshooters
This project contains two super-cool paper airplanes: the Sharpshooter and Squadron Launcher. First, you’ll learn how to build the sharpshooter paper airplane. This is a variation on the basic dart, but with a few modifications so that it works well with a mechanical launcher. Then you’ll build the Sharpshooter Launcher, which can fire an ordinary paper airplane over 60 feet with remarkable accuracy. Finally, you’ll build the Squadron Launcher, which fires 10 planes at a time.

Get all the details on how to do this yourself in our book, How to Build a Hovercraft.
