Introduction: The Breeze - a Easy to Make Paper Airplane

Picture of The Breeze - a Easy to Make Paper Airplane

The Breeze is a durable and easy to fold paper airplane that will deliver very consistent and precise flights. To make this paper airplane you will need only a single sheet of paper.This is a easy to make long range airplane.It is a fun to make airplane which can fly outdoors and indoors both (Outdoors when a strong wind is not blowing).The longest that I got it to fly was 50 feet

This instructable tells how to create the Breeze,make some changes,how to fly it.

This instructable is an entry in Paper Airplane Contest 10

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

Materials Required :
~ A NoteBook Sized Paper ( 24cm by 18cm)
~ A Ruler ( For Precise Folding)

Step 2: Start Folding

Picture of Start Folding

~ Fold a sheet of paper exactly in half long-ways, and re-open it so you have a crease separating the two halves.

~ After unfolding the paper you will see a centerline which will be used as a reference point in all our steps. 

~ On one end on of the paper, fold each corner in towards the center to the point where the inside edges are even with the centerline crease.

Step 3: Some More Folding

Picture of Some More Folding

~ The bottom edge of the corners that you just folded down should create a straight line across the page. Fold down at this line.

~ Fold the corners down again similar to what you did in the previous step, but this time only the corners should meet in the middle - leave one to two inches of straight paper at the top.

~ Where the corners of the last folds meet, you will see the point of fold 3 poking out of the bottom. Fold it up and over the two corners

Step 4: Finishing Up

Picture of Finishing Up

~ Turn the paper over onto the other side and fold it in half.

~ Fold the first wing so that the outside edge runs parallel to the body. 

~ Fold the second wing exactly as you did the first.

Step 5: Fine Tuning & Flying

Picture of Fine Tuning & Flying

Fine Tuning:
Throw the Breeze in the air see how does it react.

Your Breeze may need some fine-tuning before it will fly perfectly straight.

If it dives, slightly angle the rear of the wings up.

If it climbs and crashes, slightly angle the rear of the wings down.


Flying:
Hold the Breeze along the centerline and push it forward through the air.

Step 6: All Done!

Picture of All Done!

By this point of time you have mastered making and flying the Breeze .I hope this paper airplane inspires further experimentation and improvements in design to make the Breez Version II.If you have any queries feel free to leave a comment or send me a PM or E-mail me at r1398ohit@gmail.com

This was often called 'The moth' and I used to break the world record set by Ken Blackburn.Unfortunately my biggest fly was 21.16 seconds.
Sorry for that :(

Very well done but I am pretty sure that this plane already has a name...the Nakamura Lock.
