The Nakamura Lock : the Best Paper Airplane Ever.


Introduction: The Nakamura Lock : the Best Paper Airplane Ever.

About: Im jast a kid, what did you expect. I get $20 a month which I usually blow on LEGOs, so most of my instructables are cheapo things that anyone can afford.

This paper airplane is just one more of those cant afford real supplies instructables. Yet it still is pretty cool. flies great and easy to make.

You only need paper but I suggest have colored pencils ready for some decoration.

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


IKR (i know right) like ive been trying to find its name like for so long!!!!

how does it do if you use stiffer paper?

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

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.
