Introduction: How to Make the Bear Paper Airplane

The Bear is an interesting paper airplane with a tri-tail configuration.





TAA USAF Designation: F84-1

Step 1: Materials

Required:
1 piece of 8.5 by 11 inch Paper
Tape
Scissors
Optional:
Pencil

Step 2: Begin Folding

Take your paper and fold it along its length. 

Step 3: Continue

Fold the corners into the center. Then pull the nose back and down.

Step 4: Security Fold

Fold the corners into the center, though not all the way. Repeat on the other side and then fold the small flap below them up over it.

Step 5: Fold the Wings

From their previous position fold the airplane in half. Then fold the wings approximately 3/4 in. up from the bottom. Repeat on the other side. 

Step 6: Cut the Vertical Stabilizers

Cut the 3 vertical stabilizers out of the wing and fuselage. Each should be 3/4 in. tall. Allign them pefectly with the back of the wing.

Step 7: Tape the Airplane

Tape the plane's front and back together in the cited places in the picture.

Step 8: Flight

The Bear is a slow dart and should be launched like a dart, pitched down.

I've never tried Navy colors myself, although I've previously tried Air Force desert camo.

The Bear's design enables flights at high speeds, as well as those at low speeds.
