Introduction: Perfect Paper Airplane

This is one of my all-time favorite paper airplanes because of how easy it is to construct and its flight performance. THIS PLANE IS MY ORGINAL DESIGN. I AM ITS BIRTH PARENT.


You will need-

1 sheet of standard sized printer paper- I used a type or thicker graph paper, thus it is only optional, yet very much recommended ;)

Also as a side note, if you do not make this as precisely as possible, the plane will not fly well. Simply put.

Step 1: First Fold

This is probably the trickiest fold ever...no jk. Anyways, fold the paper in half, lengthwise. Then unfold.

Step 2: 2nd Fold

Fold the corners in to the crease you made in the 1st step.... this is how you start off a typical airplane

Step 3: 3rd Fold

Now, take the whole fold you created just then and fold it over. Then flip the whole sheet of paper over... the pictures should explain it, I don't really know how to explain it.

Step 4: 4th Fold

Next, fold the corners in once again. This time, fold the corners in to the middle line to make it look like the pictures.

Step 5: Wing Folding

Now, fold the plane inward, while aligning the top creases as closely as possible. Fold the wings down to about 3/4 an inch (look at the pictures).

Step 6: Adjustments and Throwing Technique

You should adjust the wing flaps as the picture shows. The plane should be held as the picture shows and you should throw it very hard. If the plane spirals too much, make a cut like the picture shows. Enjoy!
