Toss the shuttle by the lower handle. If it climbs and stalls, lower the elevator. If it dives, raise the elevator. If it spirals, curl the vertical stabilizer in the opposite direction of the spin. Most importantly, have fun!

That's a great model! can you try out an E2c Hawkeye?

pmet (author)the poodleo2011-07-26

Thats gonna be a pretty tough, but ill give it a shot!

the poodleo (author)pmet2011-07-27

cool! it would look nice once you're done.

pmet (author)the poodleo2011-07-31

Btw, did you want an origami-ish one or a micro-sized cutout version of one?

the poodleo (author)pmet2011-08-01

well, it would be hard to make an origami versoin, but if you can figure it out, it would be really cool.

OrigamiAirEnforcer (author)pmet2011-07-29

The Tomahawk is similar in layout to the Hawkeye. You are welcome to develop off of it should you choose to. :)

pmet (author)OrigamiAirEnforcer2011-07-31

Thanks! I'll make sure to visit the Tomohawk instructable if I work on a micro version of the Hawkeye.

Check out Swakker Shuttle!

pmet (author)mmercer12011-07-18

Vermin (author)2011-07-15

Some annotations onthe photos or text would help with clarity.

pmet (author)Vermin2011-07-15

I'm working on that right now. Unfortunately, there are many steps so it might take awhile :(

rimar2000 (author)2011-07-15

This is surely the best paper glider I've ever seen! Congratulations!

pmet (author)rimar20002011-07-15

Many thanks! I'm working on a couple other gliders with a similar construction, but if you have any particular planes you want to see "paper-fied", let me know!
