Just Follow The Fold Of The Photo And Crease
Repeat With The Other Side
Once You Do These Unfold Both Folds
Look The Result in The Last Photo

Look The Last Photo Because You Need To know Where is The Front And The Tail

Step 4: The Inside Fold

This Fold It's Easier Then It Appears
First, Try To join Points A And B ,Crease
Then , B With C, Crease
And, A With D , Crease
Fairly Easy isnt It
Should Look like In The 3rd Photo

If They're Problems, Use The Photos For Visual Aid
Look The Result in The Third And Fourth Photo

For Finishing Draw A Small line In The Crease of The First Fold ( A-B )
Should Look like In The fifth Photo

So Do it

Step 5: More Folds

This Folds Will Make The Plane Itself
First You Need To Fold In Half The Upper Part (Second & Third Images )
Repeat The Process With The Other Part
Crease Bot Folds

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).

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)  hedgiehog6 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)  hedgiehog6 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.
