Rubber-Band Powered Kite Can Fly for 5 Minutes

I have posted recently about a rubber band powered flying ornithopter project and a book on rubber-band powered cars.

Apparently, the model plane kit shown here, called the Stringless Wonder, can fly up to a mile and remain airborne for 5 minutes. A mile? 5 minutes? On rubber band power? It's hard to believe. I guess I can shell out the $10 and find out!

Available as the Stringless Wonder at Edmund Scientific and PP-4 STRINGLESS WONDER KITE at For the lowest price ($7.95) check out the Stringless Wonder at SK Science Kits.

I actually am designing a plane much like the Stringless Wonder. Well a bit like it.

I've made many designs including the Squirrel which should perform as well as a Stringless Wonder.

The 5 minute claim might be a little out there though. I've made one or two SWs and the do fly very well.
