But, in fact, the commercial airplanes that you ride on every day originated from the simple idea of the rubber band airplane. Many scientists’ ideas on aerodynamics started with a plane as simple as one powered by a rubber band. This website allows students to identify the best model of a rubber airplane by manipulating its weight and propeller speed.
