What You Need
NOTE: You'll need Acrobat Reader to print out this template. You can get it (free) here. Make sure Reader is NOT set to "Fit to Page" in print window, since this must print out at exactly the right size. Also, our Windows-using readers have advised us: When printing, specify "Print as image" as opposed to "Print as file."
What You Do
Holding by the cargo bay with the penny in front, give it a good toss! Adjusting the speed and angle of your toss will allow different maneuvers. This wing flies really well, so allow lots of room!
