5cm long glider with an 8cm wing span

Step 1:

Things needed
1. Paper
2. Pen
3. Rule
4. Scissor

First: draw the diagram as shown in the image.

Step 2:

Cut out the diagram and fold it exactly in half.
Use glue.
Fold the wings out.

Step 3:

Roll the thingy on the nose around the fuselage.

Step 4:

And your done!
Please keep in mind that this glider is very sensitive to slight winds.

Step 5:

Now you can make your own glider of any size by using the same proportions.
Keep these facts in mind for a good design
1. The wing shouldn't be on the center of the fuselage but a little towards the nose.
2. The area of paper used on side 'A' should be equal to side 'B'. This can be done by first measuring the area of side 'A' and then adjusting the length of 'X' so that the area of 'B' would be the same as 'A'.
<p>I maded,but I don't have images, sorry</p>
Good photos! Do you still have the original design? Can you scan it in to make it easier to cut out and put together?
I just drew it in Autocad. If you like I can send you a copy (in .pdf if you prefer). Shoot me an email if you'd like a copy.
<p>can u mail me. Aswathaman1590@gmail.com</p>
would you gave me one ? and my email ardress is li_zepeng@126.com thank you ! it is very kind of you ! wait for your copy!
can you please pass me a copy - doctoradi@gmail.com
Nice! Now I can spam you! <br>Just joking, never mind
Mmm... Autocad. That things kinda tricky to use. I'm taking a pre-engineering class in my 9th grade right now and the program is very hard to use with triangles... but autocad is a great solution. I'll try it when I get to school tomorrow.
Use very stiff paper for it to fly
Use very stiff paper for it to fly
<p>u know the design is great, it doesn't fly though :0, my suggestion, make it thicker somehow</p>
<p>mines can't fly do you have to chuck it?</p>
<p>can you please pass me a copy <a href="mailto:Curtis.petagna869@gmail.com" rel="nofollow">Curtis.petagna869@gmail.com</a> thanks</p>
great idea. it really flies.
<p>Can it flying?</p>
hate to be grammar police, but it's &quot;you're&quot; done - you know, you + are = you're?<br><br>nice little glider
Grammar police:<br><br>&quot;Hate&quot;, not &quot;hate&quot;.<br><br>&quot;Nice&quot; not &quot;nice&quot;.<br><br>&quot;glider.&quot; not &quot;glider&quot;
@rawknexstuff<br>how do u do that to ur profile pic?
Inkscape (simple scalable vector graphics drawing program) <br>
So you agree there should be some standards?
I'll just leave this here.
that picture is ugly
Well played, well played.
very nicely played!!
Yes, I do.
That's really cool. It took a little bit to get it to fly but it's really fun.
does it fly ?
mine didn't<br>
Mine didn't either
the measures have to be very accurate
yes it does...
this is soooo cool !!!! micro glider rocks ;-) <br>
Great Tutorial
you should add a pdf design that people can print
if your plane is too light, you can staple the front. <br>Btw nice work.
The plane I made was too front heavy. It just did a nose dive.
dose it work<br>
yes it works
wow this is cool
nice plane!!! for some reason my plane dives down and rises up, but good job!!! :)
Mine does it too. Most of the time that is. I just finished it and I think it's cool.
kewl ! ! all ready to make it, cant wait!!
Ohh this is super cool they are soo tiny. I made a PDF too. But i added a little color. Thands for Instructable i would have never thought to just make this but when i saw this i had to try. I made my nose wrapp aroound a little longer
Nice artworks, thanks!
Nice work man they look really cool in the sky!!!
thank you!!! i had such a hard time drawing it myelf
i didnt think it would actually fly but it did...i threw it hard and it did a fast little loop...big loop for its size
