Flying Saucers

In math we created flying saucers and tested if the area of the circle makes a difference on how far the "flying saucer" can fly. Each person made 2 flying saucers with different diameters.  We put paper clips on the saucers to give them more weight, and flew them in the hall.  We flew each one 6 times. In the end we found out that the smaller one flew farther than the one with the larger diameter. I thought that it flew farther because it was smaller and lighter.  The big paperclips made it heavy enough for gravity to push it far.
