Picture of
This is my favorite paper airplane that I have ever made.
It is a fairly easy Dart class plane. Also it has a weighted tip that gives it a little bit more thrust. So the herder you throw the plane the faster and farther it travels.

Small, tough and unfairly fast, this is the ride of choice for paper fighter pilots. There simply isn't a better way to his top speed with a sheet of paper.

Plus there is NO cutting or taping necessary.

So here we go.....The Hammer -->-->-->

Unfold the wings so that your plane forms a V shape.

I find that using standard letter size printer paper makes a world of difference compared to notebook paper.

Where did you learn this?
SnakesOfDeath (author)  Javim1 month ago

Probably the same place you did. A "Ultimate book of Paper Airplane" by KLUTZ. I just loved this plane so much I though that I should share it with those who don't have the book

The Hammer was not that good, it did not fly very well
SnakesOfDeath (author)  TechnoKZ1 year ago
You might not have been throwing it hard enough. The Hammer is a hard thrown plane, thus the dense tip.
I would probably advise against making this, because it honestly doesn't fly that well. If you do want to make this plane, you should probably visit somewhere else, as this tutorial is below-standard.
