A long range, fast, compact and simple paper airplane the Skynaut can work as a trainer, aerial demonstrator or aerobatic aircraft. This plane has a very small wingspan of 9 cm.

I designed the Skynaut as a low difficulty trainer version of the highly-successful Scout paper airplane. In this design, I eliminated the parasol wing arrangement to reduce drag and increase potential speed.

TAA USAF Designation: D133-1

Step 1: Materials

1 Piece of 8 by 10.5 inch graph paper
Looks like a predator UAV.
Great design! I didnt have graph paper, so I substituted one square for 2mm. The resulting gliders flew pretty well for their size. By the third glider I wanted to try something new, and came up with a jet-powered combat version of your glider. Its called the D133-1F Firenaut. Thanks again for the Instructable!
Is that dorsal anomaly an intake? :P
yet another very scale plane from pmet!
