Step 4: The Secret Step to Glide

think your done?? think again, there is one last step.

take the tip of the plane and fold it in

throw this plane by holding the point that you folded up (it kind of makes a triangle spot to hold). If your not getting the desired flight results try lifting the wings up so they make more of a dihedral (or obtuse) angle when viewed from the front.
