For me, i am happy as long as i stun my target. It needn't come back. Though that os nice too.

Printed as is, 0,2mm layers, 5% infill with orange PLA on a Replicator2.
Doesn't fly. It rotated for a few meters, then turns direction and starts wobbling towards the ground.

It seems too light to maintain rotation and resist wind. Will try another print on 100% infill.

you need to mod the file a tad as when I printed it out the edges are quite sharp, and small kiddies could actually cut them selves unless you made it part of the design

Printed with Sailfish at 120mm, .2 layers and 5% infill. Took only 25 minutes from go to throw!

I used no Raft for a really nice smooth finish on the underside.
