Picture of The Omicron, an awesome paper plane!
The Omicron is a plane invented by me and my friend Ben (http://www.youtube.com/TheXFoRZ)
It is a lot like this plane http://www.zurqui.com/crinfocus/paper/air-bld1.html  but i think our version flies smoother and stalls less, it is also easier to make as there isn't the fiddly bit in the nose.

All you need is a sheet of paper and possibly scissors if you are not comfortable ripping straight

Step 1: Making the body

start by folding the top left corner down into the right side, making a point, open it out and then fold the top right corner down and open it again to make a cross on the paper, refold the left corner and fol the tip back up upon itself (look at the picture). 
next fold the first crease to make the shape shown in the third picture, fold the right tip down and fold up the flap as before.

Step 2: Creating the Nose

the last step sould have left you with a point on your piece of paper, you can fold the top down along the line between the point and the rest of the body, then fold the right hand corner under the point as you fold the whole point down, its pretty hard to explain so look at the pictures. you should be left with a shorter piece of paper with a point at the tip

Step 3: Finishing the Nose

Fold the flap tat goes across the nose up to the front of the plane, then fold the whole nose down over to the back of the plane like in the 3rd picture

Step 4: Making the tail

Fold the wide strip at the bottom in half to make a flap, then cut or tear along the crease to make the strip for the tail

Step 5: Folding the Tail

Next fold the strip you cut off lengthways and cut a notch about 3 cm from the end and half way down, you then fold down the flaps to make the elevators

I learned this back in the 80's from a Korean student. I seemed to be the only other one to know anything about the "bird." Glad to see multiple posts on the same plane! Thanks for the variation(s).
Very good for a first instructable! The picture quality was also very good too. Adding a page detailing the materials might make it even better!

Anyway, keep up the good work! :)
