Well done! I have the book The Ultimate Paper Airplane, written by Kline and Fogleman themselves, and you explained it better. Now to actually make one...

deanmackey (author)CameronSS2007-09-14

Thanks! I have the book as well, and when I was younger, I had the plastic version of the plane that just didn't fly! The book is a good read, but the way the describe how to make the planes is difficult to follow. So I started from scratch and did my own version of it! Go ahead and make one...I don't think you will be disappointed. These fly so nice and smooth!

crapflinger (author)2007-09-14

don't mean to sound rude...but could you remove the spammish links to your site that are in each step? you just need to put that stuff up once putting it in each step is horribly annoying and VERY spammish

deanmackey (author)crapflinger2007-09-14

Sorry, this is my first instructable, and I am still working out the kinks. Thank you for your kind, constructive comments and I hope you have a great day!

crapflinger (author)deanmackey2007-09-14

cool...i did check out your site...that's alot of planes you got there....probably gonna visit again

slinky22 (author)2007-09-14

I really liked this Instructable! It was easy to follow and the plane flies great (Although, I had better luck flying it upside down, for some reason). (And yeah, the spammish links were distracting. One of them is all you need)

deanmackey (author)slinky222007-09-14

Glad to see you enjoyed the plane! One of the nice things about the Kline/Fogleman airfoil is that it flies well, no matter if the foil is on top or bottom. I will be putting another version on here sometime, with the foil on the bottom, and that one has an adjustable chord. I have removed all but two of the links.
