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!

Thats gonna be a pretty tough, but ill give it a shot!
cool! it would look nice once you're done.
pmet (author)  the poodleo2 years ago
Btw, did you want an origami-ish one or a micro-sized cutout version of one?
well, it would be hard to make an origami versoin, but if you can figure it out, it would be really cool.
The Tomahawk is similar in layout to the Hawkeye. You are welcome to develop off of it should you choose to. :)

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

This is surely the best paper glider I've ever seen! Congratulations!
pmet (author)  rimar20002 years ago
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!
