This is by far my most favorite plane and I hope it becomes yours too! Give it a try and you will not regret it. Tips- accurately line up edges and crease to get the best flight from your "eagle."

Step 1: Materials

You will need...

Step 2: Folding

Just follow the pictures. fold the paper in half then unfold it.

Step 3: Folding

Fold the two upper corners in until they are even. Now flip the whole thing over. Fold the 2 halves over to make the paper look like it is like the mail icon. And once more, fold it over to look like the picture shown.

Step 4: Folding

Now that it is flipped over, fold the "triangle part" over on the creased line you made in step three (making the mail shape with a dulled line down the center).

Step 5: Wing Shape

Fold the two upper corners somewhere near the center (have them well mirrored!). Now take the inner pointed flap and fold it so that it overlaps the two wing shapes just barely.

Step 6: Finishing Up

Now fold it in half so that the folds and creases are on the outside and it is nice and clean on the inside. Important step: fold a wing's (which ever you choose) long edge to the very bottom crease of the plane and crease it. Flip over and repeat.

Step 7: The Look of It
