Picture of How To Make The Turbo Spectre Paper Airplane
Fast, long range and simple, the Turbo Spectre is a durable paper airplane designed to replace the popular but obsolescent Strike Spectre.

When the Strike Spectre was designed, skids and landing gear were not standard on my aircraft. In the time since its publication, these features have become among my largest requirements for almost all of my paper airplanes. As a result, for some time I classed the Strike Spectre as an outdated design, in need of a successor. More recently in the summer months of 2012, the Strike Spectre--an 18 month old design by this point--garnered a surge in popularity. In addition, I also wished for a simpler design to follow the fairly intricate Sparrowhawk. After some consideration, I designed and prototyped the YA2-13, with excellent results. The prototype flew wonderfully, and it was assigned its instructable slot.

What if you made some paper airplanes out of stiffer material and strapped a propeller to each wing?

That would certainly be a test of one's ingenuity.

Things to be addressed would likely include: the center of gravity; propulsion; ground clearance of the props and layout.
Well I have actually decided to make one and just wing it with one big prop and a trim tab to counter the rotation caused by the rotation of the prop, and work it out from there. I hope it doesn't fly of out of sight.

That sounds wonderful! Could you post a photograph of it?
And by the way the motor is from a dissembled blackghost indoor helicopter
