Introduction: How to Make the Hammerhead Paper Airplane
The Hammerhead is a fast dart with a long range. Its high accuracy and range rivals that of the much larger though simpler, Kingcobra paper airplane.
TAA USAF Designation: F65-1
Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 8.5 by 8.5 inch paper
Scissors (modifications only)
Step 2: Half Fold
Make a valley fold in your square piece of paper. Then fold it into the center again.
Step 3: Corner Folds
Fold the corners into the fourth lines. Then flip, and pull into the center.
Step 4: Blunt Nose Fold
Turn over from its previous postion and pull the nose's tip down to the rear of the paper. Then turn the paper over and pull the top into the center.
Step 5: Open the Canard
Flip from it's previous postion. Open the fold as pictured. It should then appear like this.
Step 6: Fold the Top Down
Fold the "hangout" over the aircraft, then tuck the paper in.
Step 7: Fold the Wings
Fold the aircraft in half along the center from it's previous position. Then fold the wings down about 1 inch above the center. Repeat on the other side.
Step 8: Winglet Fold
Fold the wingtips into the fourth line. Repeat on the other side.
Step 9: Tape
Tape at the indicated points.
Step 10: Flight
Your Hammerhead is ready for takeoff!
Step 11: Modifications

EF65-1 Hammerhead: An F65-1 Hammerhead featuring an electronic warfare tail.
F152-1 HammerheadStreak: Faster, lighter and sportier than the regular Hammerhead, the Hammerhead Streak is a small, high performance paper airplane.
