Picture of How To Make The Raptor Paper Airplane
Fast, long range and reminiscent of fifth generation fighters, the Raptor is a small, very advanced drone paper airplane. Starting as a development of the Super SkyHornet quickly became an entirely new aircraft with an appearance akin to the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II multi-role stealth fighter aircraft. I am very pleased by its good performance and shape.

The Raptor was developed out of the concept of a "twin-finned Super SkyHornet". The new twin tail was to be heavier, so the trailing edge of the Super SkyHornet's wing had to be tapered to reduce its lifting area. The Raptor was found to perform very well and, after thorough flight testing, it was allotted an instructable.

Found the model too small to work with. 2:1 scale works well

"Too small to work with" in what way? :?
On the graph paper I used, the squares are 1 cm by 1 cm. I used scissors instead of an exacto knife to cut out the model, and ended up cutting in the wrong places. For instance, when cutting out the tail of the plane, I accidentally damaged the landing gear.
