If you've ever wanted to get into model aircraft, a rubber powered model is a good route in! 

I originally designed this plane as a proof-of-concept for my much, much larger rubber band powered airplane (shown in the video below).

Take to the skies with this DIY Rubber Band Plane Kit, providing you with everything you need, including the 3D models, templates and instructions.

This kit requires an assortment of skills with the use of foamboard, 3D prints and rubber bands to produce a working flying plane. This is the next step up for novice DIY aeronautical engineers. If you don't have any rubber or a propeller, don't worry, you can find where to get them with the links below


My favourite foam board!

Here's a website (with global shipping) where you'll find the rest of the materials and hardware you'll need (such as rubber and propeller). There's a list of supplies below this, so just type them in and you should find them. Email if you have a problem finding anything!
