Introduction: Paper Plane: the Derp Plane

Picture of Paper Plane: the Derp Plane

As you can see by the title, this is the derp plane. As you attempt to throw you plane, it will not fly, nor will it glide. It will completely lose control and derp. It's hard to explain what it does, but with a sheet of paper, and 5 precious minuets, you too can experience how truly derpy this plane is.

DISCLAIMER: Does not actually fly.

Step 1: Beginning Fold

Holding the paper landscape wise (long), fold the paper into quarters.

Step 2: More Beginning Folds

Again holding the paper landscape, fold the paper in half then open to creat the crease.

Step 3: Finishing Beginning Folds

Fold the paper, making a triangle, along the crease. Fold paper once more along crease. (Just like making a normal paper plane).

Step 4: Making the Wimgs

Fold the paper into itself so the winglets are showing. Bend the bigger wings so that it is making a 90 degree angle relative to the base/handle.

Step 5: Finishing Up

Fold the smaller side wings onto itself then unfold so it creates a crease. (It's OK if they are exactly the same)

Congratulations, if done right, your plane should look like this. Now throw your plane and watch it derp!

Love this Instructable - the name immediately caught my eye! I've seen the Derp and Merp books, so I had to read this. Great (very derpy) work! :D
