cut your tail fin but do it at more of an angle with a longer cut mine was too steep

Step 7: Vents

these vents act like intakes in an engine they speed up the air over the back of the wing makesure they line up when you cut them

Step 8: Stabilisers

they are made by folding the wings in they level the flight. line them up when floding like when you did the wings

LOVE the vents. Been making planes for years and never seen that before! Well done!

somebody needs to find out how to make double tail fins so it would look like a f-14

Great plane, great instructable. I folded some of the nose back inwards and cut off some of that abundant paper. It made the plane less noseheavy and even smoother in its flight

Holy crap! I didn't do your "secondary wing stabilizers" (yet) but it still flies quite well. I was wondering where on the plane you would recommend using the tape. Also, the vents just seem so...cool.

where ever you see fit

I dont understand the tail fin what do you fold to get it?

i agree with danny, this is a very good 1st instructable, i can hit my bros with this thing from across my house, this is very acurate. GOOD JOB!!!!!!

we here at the icanryme institute are proud of our many minutes of easy R and D we put in to this plane but seriously i designed it for a tech project. it works a bit better if you make it out of cardstock. and try adding more side stabilizers for fun.

You have caught an orb. Do you watch poker?
