Oops, I stand corrected. It's actually in Eiji Nakamura's 1972 book Flying Origami.

Actually, it was invented by Eiji Nakamura, an origami artist. You can check it out in his 1993 book Quick and Easy Flying Origami.
Unless you have documentation of your invention that predates that one...

Just saying

It's called the Nakamura Lock in the Klutz Book of Paper Airplanes, published in 2004.

ill admit its good, but not football fields good

how does it do if you use stiffer paper?

idkwthiam (author)darknessfalls2010-08-20

i used construction paper once but it was to weighed down to much, but go ahead and try.

darknessfalls (author)idkwthiam2010-08-23

what about 65 lb cardstock? i know normal printer paper is about 20 lb, so i think the extra firmness would be helpful

i've personely flown this baby end zone to end zone,but you have to start from the bleachers.
