Step 1: The basic start

First, you fold a peice of 8.5X11 paper in half, crease it, and reopen it.
Then, you flip it over so that the fold is mountain (/\) side up.
Next you fold the top corners (at 45 degree angles) towards the /\ crease.

Step 2: Make the wings

Flip the plane over so the plane is pointing away from you, and the center crease is in a valley orientation (v).
Now, fold the wings so that the once-leading edges of the wing are one mm from the v crease, and crease.
Flip the plane over, and bend the nose in half, under the front, and crease.
Flip back over, and fold one whole side so that the leading edge is touching the bottom of the plane, crease, repeat on the other side, and there are your wings

Step 3: Finish the plane (add tail)

Open the wings, and make a cut one inch from the rear of the plane on the bottom of the v slanting slightly forward, and push it up to convert it from a v to an /\, and crease it so it stays up strait.
Fold the wings back down, and perk the up a little, so that the still face downwards slightly, but aren't facing up.
I threw it and it hit the door but it works realy well thanks.

It's not so good, but I put the cut rear in other models, and they are now great!

the plane looks really cool, but when you throw it it tends to veer upwards.

I incorporated the flap design into other failed models, they work great now thank you so much
I accidentally folded the wings wrong, where the tips were lined up with the bottom and the wings were folded at a horizontal line; I folded over this mistake, correctly, and the finished plane flies so well, I'm not sure how to describe it. Try and see if the extra folds help the design...
