Description

This thing flies much farther than a frisbee. Throw it with a spin like a football, and it sails up to 600 feet!  ...well the original manufactured one flies that far - I got this one to fly 60 feet. :)

I printed with 25% infill and used cold-vapor acetone for ~30 minutes to toughen and smooth the model.
