Instructables
I am going to show you how to make a fairly rare paper airplane. By rare, I mean searching Instructables and Google Video, I could not find a similar model. I just learned how to make this airplane a week before the contest, so It works out great.

I like this plane, because it doesn't involve cutting, and uses standard copier paper. This plane does involve a little measuring, but a little guessing shouldn't affect flying too much.

A video of making and flying the Airplane is available here on the intro, and on the last step.

Oh yeah, this is my first Instructable, so please, I don't even care if your rude about it, tell me what I can do to improve.

Step 1: Gather Materials

-8.5x11 inches paper
-Ruler (optional)
-Scissors (optional)

As I said before, You will need a standard 8.5x11 sheet of printer paper. You could use lighter paper if you felt the urge (like tracing paper, or rice paper), or you could print a simple pattern or texture on your paper.

A ruler helps to get the measurements exact, which in turn makes better flight.

You may wish to make elevator flaps on the back of the wings with the scissors. I personally do not do this, because I believe it flies better without them.

Step 2: Make Initial Folds

The first few fold are like how you would make most other paper airplanes.

1. Do a "Hot-Dog" fold, in half vertically. If you need further assistance, I have drawn a line on the fold. :P
2. Fold the two corners down to the center fold.
3. Fold THOSE corners down once more, again, to the center line.

Both 2 and 3 are mirror folds on the opposite side.

This plane is sweet! I had to make the stabilizers bend down, but it worked well. After maybe an hour of play in the road, it only got moderately damaged. Most of the time it did a sliding landing, but sometimes just crashed.

Thanks for another design, I think i'll stick to the seven fold one :). I don't see how people aren't clever enough to follow written instructions, I prefer them to the video, so that's good too.

I just looked in a book and found it. It's apparently called a "eagle"

i knew this plane all along (no offence) but it isnt quite rare if you pick an airplane book of the shelf you will find it very easy
i just flew it and its pretty good but some of the pics are blurry
Looks pretty cool. Kind of hard to go, a little problems making it PERFECT, but it works. Nice job, might put some awesome designs on it, and true, it is very rare, I don't think I've seen it before. Nice job once again!

the plane flies good but not like i expected it to. Its a good plane but i think you need to ajust it a little to win the contest.

Yes, you need to do a lot tweaking after the first flight, but once you get everything straight, it will go far and stable. The tape on the back is vital, by the way.
