Micro (or Mini) Aircraft





Introduction: Micro (or Mini) Aircraft

A little, but little little, sail glider maked in 5 minutes

Step 1: First, Draw It

The measures are approximate, need not be accurate.

Mi finger and the pen there are as a reference

Step 2: Cut

With scissors or a cutter, cut the drawing by continuous lines

The greyed triangle under the body it is waste.

Step 3: Folding and Shaping

Here I used Scotch tape, but it is not necessary if the cuttings are well done.

Step 4: Balancing and Final

Putting the fingers under the central line of the wings, the body of the aircraft must be horizontal.

Add / Remove weight in the nose to achieve it.

And this is all. The plane must fly 3 or 4 meters. That is no small thing, considering the size.

    err can u plz add a bit of details? i dont understand how to fold it.thx =D

    Error: can you please to write English? i dont understand your phrase. I speak Spanish, then I have to use Google translator. Therefore, you should write in proper English.

    huh me? if so, can u explain to me how to fold it? i don't know how to fold the paper airplane thank you

    When he said to speak proper english, he probably didnt want you to use slang words such as "u." Just pointing that out

    Yes, it is as you say. Consider I don't speak English.

    The objective of this Instructable is to make the people to think, to do and to experiment. That is much more funny than receive the answer.

    What are those diagonally slanted lines under the "right wing left wing" section?

    One (left of the image) is for provide a slot to support the wings. The other is the only way to cut the wings, without being separate from fuselage.

    If you make the glider, you understand it. It is easier to do than explain.

    Thanks for your comment.

    so is this made of index card or regular printing paper?
