Step 2: The Folding

Start by folding the piece of papaer in half length-wise. The unfold.

Step 3: The Folding

Fold both top corners down to the middle line to make a triangle. i did one for the pic but you get the idea.

Step 4: The Folding

With both corners folded down, you get a triangle. Grab the point and fold it downalong the bottom of the triangle. The triangle should be pointing down now.

(If it is confussing, look at the pics, they should help you get the idea.)

Step 5: The Folding

Fold the top corners down once more like in step 3. the poit should reach the tip of the old triangle.

Step 6: The Folding

This is where you decide i you want a trick plane or a speed plane. if you want a trick plane that floats and spins, loop-de-loops,etc. skip this step. if you want a speed plane follow this step.

Add tape to the back so it does not sepparate, the side so the "flap" stays down, and on the bottom of the "flap" so it stays down.

you need four pieces to do this. if you are confused pm me.

Step 9: Decoration

add any decoration you want, from a name to a design. do whatever you want. i added flames on the wings.

these have bean my favorite planes for years and its good to experiment with how you fold the wings and the best configuration of all is bending the back of the wings up or down to make it fly longer or do loops PS: when the flaps are up the plains back goes down so the nose goes up to make it fly up but doing this to much may make it stall but that's sometimes a good thing
thanks for the tip plus look at this photo
 hey umm the points are not sopposed to touch the triangle they are sopposed to be half an inch under it then u fold the triangle over them

how do you do step 6?
stich900 (author)  sick-al6 years ago
well yau have a pentagon. now fold it down the middle so you have a 4-sided fiqure. you fold it so that the current point on step 5 is still the point on step six.
ar thanks, but now i know it, i am felling a bit silly about that.
Nice. Looks like an easy plane to do, is it a good glider?
stich900 (author)  GorillazMiko7 years ago
The trick is, but be warned that it will spin and flip and go crazy. the speed doesnt as much glide as slice th air
i mean 4 step 4
