I've been making variations of this one fore years. One has a tail, but it is cut from the bottom strip of Step 3 (fold to make the square, the cut of the bottom part).

Man, did you flag me?
yes it's homemade, but a paper airplane isn't really a gift and it annoys the shit out of me when people copy things. no i didn't flag you
but i did
acaz93 (author)  bigpinecone8 years ago

This step confuses me... Should I use a sheet of 8.5x11 carbonfiber? or do I use plaster... -.- Lol, your plane looks sweet though, I have passed my first step :-p Nice instructable, I'll comment when I get to the end :D I'm looking forward to it!

I beileive that this is the plane that set the world record of a flight that lasted 26 seconds, so far this is the best paper airplane in the world
This IS the best paper airplanethe recored is a minute and ten seconds
acaz93 (author)  hedgiehog7 years ago
Yes , the web page said that , and i aprove it , the last time i've thrown it from a 5 floor building , it flown about 45 secs that to the wind ,
i beilive that the record wasn't flown in wind or from a 5 floor building
acaz93 (author)  hedgiehog7 years ago
Me Too , But You Get the idea . . Btw:The Real Record is In the roof of the house
To make this is record-breaking on its own... :-p It's very nice, you just need to improve a little bit your instructions, eg. in Step 4, where is point D? Also you could have a few more pictures, not so much close up....

I might try making this later. Hey, next time you do an instructable Can You Please Not Write Like This, Where You Capitalise The First Letter Of Every Word? It's Very Annoying... Thanks :)

Why are you capitalizing the first letter of every word? This isn't the title of a book.
