First two work great.  Throw water and PLOP, PLOP!!!    Tried to make some blades but the plastic beads and cofffee stirrer tubes not frictionless enough and or my prop pitch is off😝.  They turn but not freely enough.   Not gonna finish them till tweek the props. Heavey May be better than buoyancy on the props.

We interrupt this project to either cut the lawn or BALE it🥴

The bigger the fly the bigger the rod.

Nice divers maybe Fsg2.   Look like LazyIke plugs.  I made the top 2 plop blades from foam balls and curved plastic from Easter egg shells, Solarez.  Robbed the bottom 2 w/hardware from plastic plopper trailer I got at Dicks.    Tried a Cicada....Lil flipflop foam not sure how long the lil bubble wrap wings gonna last.
