given enough power even a barn door can be made to fly -

I've flown a lawn mower, a dog house, and I even had one something like that - except mine was round and had a big smiley face painted on the bottom.

The pizza box above looks like a lot less effort for the fun.
This is sort of tailless.

Flax? As in using the fibers? Hemp fibers can produce a composite like fiberglass, but 1/3 lighter and 1/3 stronger, and instead of being carbon-liberating, it's carbon-sequestering and non-toxic. unlike epoxy and glass fiber.

How is the flax used?
