Paper Plane Launcher Machine

The ultimate paper plane launcher Machine

To make this fun project we will use our lego mindstorms EV3, rubber bands, adhesive tape and some sheets of paper.
To overcome this engineering challenge we will build a set of gears to be able to increase the final speed of our robot’s mechanism and be able to launch the aircraft over long distances ..

What you will make

In this resource you will learn how to make a paper plane launcher machine and create complex mechanisms with small cogwheels to vary the launch speed of our paper planes.

What you will learn

  • Use the EV3 Motors.
  • Make paper planes.
  • Create a program with EV3 software.

Make the Robot:

Follow the instructions to build your ev3 robot. You can use comercial or education mindstorms kits.

Program with Lab View:

Use loop block and move direction motor block
