What did you make the baffle out of? It kindof looks like a trash bag? How is the propeller held on?

But how is it held on? From the pic it looks like it's somehow ziptied on.

Does it actually go above the ground, or does the skirt drag? I remember making one of these a few years ago out of a cake pan, and a motor with a fan, and 9v battery.

It would float about 1/16th of an inch.. which isn't much.. Maybe I will try making a new one like yours, but without the controller, and weighty parts.

Place your attention entirely on my voice and try to ignore all the others. It is important to be able to focus on a single source of information while blocking out all the other things competing for your attention.

I don't think Tytus will have a problem with this, considering the fans that are used. The Propeller would break before his hand does. It looks like a light plastic material.

His were plastic too. Have someone stick their finger in the propeller and see if it comes off

I had an unfortunate but lucky experience with a wooden propeller on an RC airplane. I accidentally hit the channel reversing switch on the transmitter while I was working over the plane. The propellor spooled up really quick and it my arm going really fast. Lucky for me, all I got was a 1.5 inch gash instead of a missing finger.

Moral of the story, think ahead like 4 steps in whatever you are doing. A lot of accidents will be prevented. I don't think you need a guard because it would be impractical but just be careful in what you do.

Have fun.

Some of the best things in the mechanical world come without plans, instructions, or a parts list. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a "just do it" sort of project - and that's totally cool with me.
