Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 8.5 by 8.5 inch Paper
Scissors (elevators only)
"Spirit of..." Templates

Step 3: Nose Folding
Step 4: Fuselage and Nose Folding
Step 5: Wing Folding
Step 6: Vertical Stabilizer Folding
Step 7: Taping
Step 8: Flight
Like most paper aircraft, the Spirit just needs a good throw. To make this plane go long distances or perform aerobatic maneuvers and stunts, give it a swift throw in the direction you want it to go. You may also try installing a paper clip for catapult launches as detailed here.
If your Spirit does well on its maiden voyage, you have successfully finished your aircraft. If your airplane experiences flight issues, you may need to make elevators as directed in the next step.
