Introduction: Paper Fighter (yes It Flies)
Runner Up in the
Toss It! Speed Contest
Impress your friends, your dog/cat and yourself
need: 2 A4papers, 15 mins and some SKILLZ only
You will need:
2 A4 papers
Stapler, ruler, pencil
Above average skills at paper planes
5 minutes upward
Fold precisely, even half a millimeter makes a dfference
All folds symetrical except for the nose fold over
Use crisp paper without punched holes etc..
Step 1: Fuselage
note. easy steps are skipped (quite obvious)
Step 2: Wings and Body
note. 95% of this plane can be folded by aligning to previous folds somehow
Step 3: Assembly
put both together!
Step 4: TOSS IT!
Rubberband launch is preferred
USE 2 rubber bands in series and pull back gently, sudden acceleration will kill the plane and it will fall like a dead bird
Using low gsm paper for the wings and high gsm paper for the body gives Exellent results
Aim 5 to 40 degrees to horizon
Inspiration from countless hours of boring school lessons, can fly and glide somewhat for above 20 metres (what do ya expect) if done correctly
Video is an attempt to fly it, will post more video if i can get better video
Step 5: Video
We have a be nice policy.
