Introduction: The Best Paper Airplane...period.

Picture of The Best Paper Airplane...period.

i realized as i was searching for paper airplanes that there is already an instructable on this plane but i assure you that i knew about this plane before i saw that instructable. enjoy....

(too bad i didnt finish in time for the toss it contest...oh well...mabey next time ;)

Step 1: Starting the Plane

Picture of Starting the Plane

To start this plane you should use your average size printer paper.

Step 2: Some More Folding

this is the easy part, after this it gets hard...super hard, na just kidding...

Step 3: The Hard Part

(ok so i lied...sue me!) This part is a little hard to understand.

Step 4: The Easier Part

Picture of The Easier Part

from this point on it gets alot easier. All you do is flip the plane over and fold the tip down...then flip the plane over again and crease half the bottom section then tear it off. this will be the start of your tail.

Step 5: The Wings

now you are almost done!!! after the wings are folded add your newly made tail into the plane and then your done!!!

That tail doen't make any sense, I did not get how to fold it or where to put it from this.

kl plane awsome tail

westcoastamazon (author)2009-12-05

Mine seems to be nose heavy.  It does these nice gliding loops...but that's it, no distance.  Granted I am at work and trying to throw it at my co-workers...and don't have the most beautiful folds in the world...any tips?  Or just practice makes perfect?

 take off the tail

CaseBoy (author)2010-03-20

hock3ydud3 (author)2010-03-19

mtm101097 (author)2009-08-23

I used to make this plane all the time a few years ago but with a different tail and one of the hardest steps were harder because i did it differently. 5 stars!!!

CarManMikey13 (author)2009-01-26

I can see how there could be a nose to that plane but how do i fold it to make landing gear

coolboy45 (author)2008-12-22

a918bmxr (author)2008-12-10

jordanboy77 (author)joelakafuzzy2008-05-05
