Two of my students built this out of stuff they could find in school.

Screws and pins were used for weights. I had them get some brushes and acrylic paint from the art department to spiffy it up...

Cool!  Looks very lightweight; hope it glides well for them and gets them enthusiastic about airplanes.  Welcome to the forum!

Thanks... They're actually pretty good at "teaching" (adjusting the wing angle and weight) these foam flyers to fly... I'll try posting a video.

They actually won a district competition against students two years their senior. They'll be competing in the next (provincial) level later this month.
It's crazy how one of the students isn't doing really good in his classes in science and math... but he seems to have a knack for this.  He had a huge hand in winning the previous competition, since he did the wing adjustments.
