I can't get the rubber bands to go more than three or four inches. I have tried several different types, and have tweaked the physical design (length of firing piece, gear, release mechanism).
I know the instructions say it works best with the rubber band included in the create package, but I chose Edison because of the low cost and can't afford to purchase the Create kit for my homeschool co-op.
What size/strength rubber band is included in the kit? How far are you able to get your rubber bands to shoot?

The rubber bands used in the EdCreate kit are a 25mm diameter rubber band. They are similar in size to one of the smaller types of Lego rubber band.
From our testing in the office, the EdTank can shoot an EdCreate rubber band over 3m
