Introduction: Hotdog-Style Flyer

I like to call this flyer the hotdog-style flyer because it has hotdog-style folds. This thing is one of the best flyers and glides for awhile before gravity takes over. It's also great because it only takes a few seconds to fold and there aren't any tricky steps.

Step 1:

Fold the bill in half....HOTDOG-STYLE of course!

Step 2:

Fold the top down about a third of the way. A good way to tell where a third is is to eyeball an area about double the size of the edge you are bringing over.

Fold the model in half, folded edges outward.

Step 3:

Fold the edges back down to create the exaggerated "m" shape like in the picture. Fold the tips of the wings up. Now open the flyer, hold the base to throw, and let that baby soar!

    Nice! Mine Flew 90 Inches and then it spun like a helicopter. Thanks!

    Thank you very much

    Does it really fly?

    Yes! It actually flies really good, makes me sad it didn't get much love in terms of views haha. If you make one, don't try to throw it like a normal paper airplane, it does best with more of a pushing action.
