Learn how to build a long distance paper glider that will go further than any other airplane you've made.

Step 1: Step 1 - Prefolding

Pre-fold along the lines. White is primary side.
<p>how long is he flying???</p>
<p>you are all WRONG. Have u ever heard of Murata Lock?</p>
<p>Don't you mean the Nakamura Lock? And yes, I agree. This is a very good plane.</p>
<p>This is the plane all noobs learn.. the Nakamura Lock. Make a genuine plane like the Hammer or the world record planes for distance and air time.</p>
Maybe SOME people need to start off EASY...And its fine because it works better than just a dart, as far as distance. Maybe some people just arent good at nice folds and need practice. And this is not the plane all the noobs make the dart is
<p>The plane that I made was so successful using a letter size printer paper!! :)</p>
<p>Great design! Oh by the way, wouldn't it be better to use stiff paper so the wings don't fold or shake in flight?</p>
<p>a4 letter size printer paper help?</p>
<p>I havent tested it yet but from the way I have folded it it is probably not going to fly that well</p>

<p>works good, but accidently threw it into a volcano. very low accuracy</p>
<p>Much Wows</p><p>Many Lies</p><p>Much Die Please</p>
<p>hay guys lookin for a great time meet me at the dark alley ill give you a good rash :)</p>
<p>Well.. mine just went into the neighbours garden.. time for plane number 2 lol</p>
does not fly strait or far <br>
HHHHHEEEEEYYYY you copycat :( ha!
I saw this is a book once, it was called the &quot;Nakamura Lock&quot;, except the first set of folds are different in the book.
mine flew in the toilet and hours later I forgot all about it after I took a wizz and a turd so its in the sewer
This is the original moth design it works better if you use really light paper I use somewhat stiff tissue paper
consider putting a small paperclip to the front tip.
hm, mine only hit the roof and loop around.
Freaking awesome plane, although you could add that if certain parts of the plane aren't even then it won't fly properly. Anyway I absolutely love it! &gt;:-)
someone need a hug?
i do
&nbsp;i need a hug plz<br /> <br />
yey hugs rock!
amazing i used it as a class project and i got a A<br>
I've made better.<br><br>And isn't this the plane that everyone knows?
mine keeps falling apart no matter what.*whines*
ITS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I accidently chucked it in the toilet. But its still really awesome.
u threw while going pee?!
if u flip it over and do the same folds it becomes a dart
I learned this plane when I was in kindergarten and everyone would come to me for them. I'd be a millionaire if I had charged for them... ;)
I first encountered this design, which I remember being great 20+ years ago, in <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Paper-Aircraft-Construction-follow/dp/0207145024" rel="nofollow">Advanced Paper Aircraft Construction</a> by Campbell Morris. I have four books in the series.
omg i love you (but not in the gay waybut in this is the best plane ever)<br /> oh yeah i flew during my physics class my teacher caught looked at it&nbsp; gave me thumbs up some extra credit. then when i thought i was in the clear he gave me a detention:)
meh<br /> <br />
this plane is &quot;meh&quot; to me. if you think about it... try to make gliders either based off this or make it wide ways for bigger wings. u gotta figure it out on ur own for wide airplanes.<br />
I have made this type of plane before which in my country, Wales, it is called a HARRIER JET PLANE I have only said this to show you the name of it Good instructable by the way :)
I threw this plane out of my window and it flew more than 100 feet (i was on the roof by the way) this is awsome
cooooooolllllll i lov it thxz<br/><strong>lol</strong><br/>
great glider, flies very far and straight. thanks!!!
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks SSSOOOOOO MUCH.
first off nice Instructable. but anyway this plane is good, although I found a glider that will go much farther. I measured approximately a 4-5:1 glide ratio on it.(that means it goes 4-5ft. forward for every foot it drops)<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MI9mo-eAls">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MI9mo-eAls</a><br/><br/>although it's a little hard to fold<br/>
