Instructables
The Super Voyager is an updated version of the Voyager paper airplane with a larger wing for longer range flights. The Super Voyager is a fairly simple drone paper airplane and is remarkable forgiving. It is an excellent aircraft for introduction to miniature paper aviation.

The Super Voyager was not an aircraft that had been planned on more than a few days prior to publishing. Originally, I had hoped to replace the Albatross and Dragonfly paper airplanes with an aircraft that did not have a constant chord wing. However, in testing, modernized Cardinal and Dragonfly variants experienced difficulties and as a result, delays. To fill in in at least an interim slot, I decided to design a newer, slightly larger variant of the Voyager with greater long range abilities than its basis. The effort in designing the Super Voyager was rather conservative, but the resulting aircraft is still excellent.

This is one of my most versatile aircraft too, and with that versatility it can work in several roles; such as testbed, demonstration cruiser and messenger aircraft. The Super Voyager may be useful for educators seeking to introduce students to aviation, flight dynamics, physics and geometry among other topics.

Some potential experiments possible with this airframe include:
•Glide ratio
•Weight and balance
•Hangtime versus other aircraft
•How surface inequality can affect aircraft (geometry/shape studies)
•Physics experiments

TAA USAF Designation: D187-2

hi can i have all the steps without downloading the pdf?

OrigamiAirEnforcer (author)  genemc8 months ago

Yes you may; the steps are visible online. To view the construction steps, just use the orange "next" button in the lower right corner of each step. You may also select individual steps by number just beneath the PDF download option. These processes are universal for all steps on this instructable and all others on the website.

Enjoy! :)

can you help? whenever I throw the plane it just does loops and falls out of the air. :(
You may want to add dihedral angling and camber to the horizontal stabilizers. Please tell me if this does (or does not) help.

Hello, does someone tried to build a bigger model with the same scheme as come with this size?
I mean twice or three time the size, not bigger.
OrigamiAirEnforcer (author)  gmeschini1 year ago
Do you mean a larger version with the same proportions? If so, I'm afraid I do not know. I do, however, know that these airplanes can be difficult when their sizes are altered.

where do you find all that grid paper, I can never find any
OrigamiAirEnforcer (author)  cmurph2 years ago
This is the type I use. I usually buy it from Wal-Mart though.
I can never seem to find it walmart, or target, I cant even find any in michels

Notebook paper works too, although you must measure it yourself, (1 box = 0.25 inches).
Your right.

Now you have it in your printer.
That may work, although I am not sure if the design can handle the extra weight of the 8.5 by 11 inch copy paper when it was designed to handle the much lighter graph paper, which is comparable to notebook paper.
Excuse me but instead of me building all of your creations, very cool ones, which flys the best? Like long and straight?
I have many that can fulfill those requirements. For the "drone" scale, this, the Super Voyager and the Super Manx are the two longest range designs of their scale. As for copy paper scale, the Skywarrior and Vigilante are among the best fliers for the requirements you describe.

Hope this helps! :)
AWESOME!!!!!!!!

Ps. do u have any that dont need tape, glue , or scissors? i appreciate it.
Thank you!

Although I do not have any airplanes of this "drone" size that can fit those criteria, the larger Skyhawk and Super Skyhawk do.
