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 -->-->-->

pic 1: You should now have a big X in your paper.
pic 2: Fold upper-right corner down, putting the long edge on the crease you just made
pic 3: Make the same fold withe the upper-left corner.

Step 3:

pic 1: Fold in half, then unfold.
pic 2: Important: see note on picture.
pic 3: Fold the top edge to the bottom, make sure to line up the creases.
pic 4-5: Fold the new upper-right corner to the center of the creased X. Do the same on the other side
pic 6: Unfold the last two folds. It should look like this.

Step 6: Finishing toutches

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

You are done. Go outside an throw that plan as hard as you can and watch it fly.

The Hammer was not that good, it did not fly very well

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.
