What you need:
1+ pizza box/boxes (with as few grease stains as possible)
1 keychain ring (circuler metal thingy)
Scissors (preferably sharp and big)
Tape (duct, scotch, blue, anything)
Ruler (trust me you'll need one)
String (sorry it wasn't here before)
(I beg you to look at the comments)
Step 1: Body
From one side to the other it measures about 14"
This is your body,
next is the wings
(don't pay attention to the slits :] )
Step 2: Wings
it is about 15" side to side and 3" wide,
if your confused with measurments use your head and look at the picture.
Step 3: Back Tail
Make it roughly this shape,
It measures about 7" across and 2" high.
Once again, use your head.
Step 4: Weights
They should be 1 1/2" wide and the height may vary according to your plane's nose.
Step 5: Slitting
Look at the picture to see the spacing.
For the slits, you can try altering the angle of them, for more lift, which should in theory keep it up longer.

Step 6: Shoving In
If you need to use tape to make them stay in thats what it's for.
Step 7: Nose weight
Attach them by the key chain.
(Sorry it's so blurry look at the intro picture to see it clearer)
Step 8: GETTING IT TO FLY!
try pushing the wings up so the don't sag,
or cut a slit right above the big wings as shown.
Step 9: Step 8 continued
Keep experimenting with the angles of the wings until it flies.
If it doesn't work read a book on aerodynamics.
Step 10: How To
Make sure you rate it unless you want to rate it badly in which case don't rate it.
(First Instructable so CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.)
(I ran out of pictures so I put this seal!)
"I think the string must be UNDER the wings, because the wings tends to lift.
Besides, the balance of the frontal counterweight is very simple to achieve: put a finger under the average line of each wing, and the fuselage (aircraft body) should remain horizontal."
-rimar2000 told me this if your not satisfied with your plane try doing it.
