The Skystreak is a fast, long range flying wing paper airplane.



TAA USAF Designation: F85-1

Step 1: Materials

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

Step 2: Start Folding

Fold the paper along its width. Then fold it in half again, to result in fourths. Then open the paper. You should have a paper divided into four.

Step 3: Folding the Top Down

Fold 3/4 of an inch down from the top. Repeat until you reach the mid-section. Fold the paper in half along the center line.

Step 4: Stabilizers

While the wing is folded in half, cut two small fins into the wing. The cut should be from 1 inch back from the trailing edge at a shallow angle, (less than 45 degrees), 3/4 inch into the wing. Then fold the fins up. Repeat on the other side. 

Step 5: Tape

Tape the previous fold down on the leading edge of the aircraft.

Step 6: Flight

Your aircraft is now finished. The Skystreak is launched by holding it along its center line and advancing it through the air forward slowly. Enjoy!

Step 7: Modifications

From the many variants this airframe can be made into, this is one:

TF85-1 Cadet: A basic trainer/demonstrator variant of the Skystreak with a fuselage. Skystreaks can be converted to this standard.

<p>Soooo fun!</p>
<p>Looks like you're enjoying a <strong>Cadet</strong>. :)</p>
<p>Yeah!</p>
You know John Collins the paper airplane guy and also do you make air surfing gliders
I know who John Collins is, I do not know him personally. I do make many gliders, as can be seen on <a href="https://www.instructables.com/member/OrigamiAirEnforcer/" rel="nofollow">my main page</a>.
how do you throw it?
The Skystreak or the Cadet?<br> <br> The <strong>Skystreak</strong> is launched by <em>holding it along its center line and advancing it through the air forward slowly</em>. (I will be editing this instructable's &quot;Flight&quot; page to reflect this.)<br> <br> The <strong>Cadet</strong>'s launch configuration is detailed in its instructable.
