Iíve failed in getting a 10 second flight last 3-4 years despite offering a Rs 1000 prize.

So Iím increasing the prize to Rs 5000.

10 second flight with anything except RC with power.

Proof of flight videos posted before offer closes, at 9pm Sunday 11th Oct.

Donít ask doubts. JUST DO IT.

Best wishes to all potential contestants

PS

Only ONE prize.
For first person to achieve and post flight video.

Hope you are not claiming a 10+ second flight downward from a rooftop!

Are you in Indore?
In April, you said you were stuck in Indore during lockdown, and asked for some stuff.
But there was no reply to my posts...

Hey, yeah i was in indore, i wanted parts from you for my cousin, but by the time i located all the parts from u and websites, she changed plans. I just didnt know how to bring that up.
Then exams and i drifted away.
Now i gotback on rci looking for a mavic.
Nope No rooftop  Grin Wink


guys the link to the folder is below! Hats Off
there are 3-4 videos in which i reached the mark, i am still viewing all the recordings. and uploading it to the folder as i find them.
i ended up throwing airplanes more than 60-70 times

Honestly this isnt the best airplane design, but i was able to  squeeze 10 seconds out of it.
One thing that helped me were,
ironing the paper before folding. it removes a lot of moisture ( youll be surprised how much) and  makes the paper more stiff!

The longer you burn the paper under the iron the crispier it becomes at yes the cost of becoming more brittle!

P.s ill also upload some of  the failed attempts in a youtube link.


Folder link :
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1TsvwiE86J1ADh92r3KlEsxgLbSuE-a6L?usp=sharing

three are 3-4 vids .. taking time to upload  :-/

@imperial Fire

Wish you had posted videos showing elapsed time.
So that I didnít have to time your flights separately.

Your flights are just over 10 seconds.
Well done.
I never imagined a paper planewould win.

Would you like to donate half for others who willbe inspired by your achievement?
Say 1000+750+750 for the next three successful attempts?

Send your bank ac details.
And tellme whether to credit 5000 or 2500.

Either way, Iíll fund you tomorrow.

CONGRATS

@ KK Iyer,
wow,
thats amazing.

so i loved making paper airplanes always.
also i remember , in class 10 when i was caught making paper airplanes by tearing off pages from our english digest. my school principle  instead of scolding us provided us with newspapers from the library and asked us to continue exploring the air.
( just a memory i thought id share)
a couple months ago i threw a paper airplane off the cyclopean wall when doing a ground truth verification at rajgir, all my friends kept watching it. it just flew away!

Absolutely love things that fly, and would love to make my own trike some day.

And while i would love to share my Prize with others, i hate typing that--- i wont be sharing it guys  Tongue
please dont hate me  >Cheesy
we have a project of our own in the pipeline and are requesting our university for funding- which hasnt happened so far.

a glimpse of our project pic is here-  in the banner image!
https://nalandauniv.edu.in/academics/sms/

all 5k is definitely getting routed to making our airplane more autonomous.
thankyou so much.

But yeah this was fun.
Made me get out of my room and long online research sessions.
Loved it.
Okay ive exceeded my word limit. Ill d.m you with the rest sir!
 Hats Off Hats Off
