Step 1: Collect your paper

Picture of collect your paper
on this plane you can use any paper that is 8 1/2 x 11 inches, i like that thin decorative paper its cool and pretty. but your ordinary printer paper will work fine. all you need is a piece of paper, No tape, No scissors, No paper clips, just paper!

Step 2: Start folding!

you are going to need to do the most precise folds for the best plane. first off you are going to fold the paper into a triangle and do the same on the other side.

Step 3: Folding

okay now you need to fold the sides in just like the pictures

Step 4: Folding

Now fold the whole plane in half.

Step 5: Folding

no unfold it and fold the top down so the crease down the center is perfectly overlapping the other.
after fold the two sides so the corners are touching each other, then unfold them.

Step 6: Folding

Picture of folding
fold the bottom part up so it is folding right along the creases on the sides.

Step 7: Folding

now fold those pesky sides in so they are perfectly along the side of the plane.

Step 8: Folding

now fold those parts you just folded, fold them in again. ~_~ (i know confusing)

Step 9: Folding!

Now fold the wings on the line across the bottom of the plane.

Step 12: How to fly

Now hold it near the center and fold the wings a bit up and throw it with medium power, upward a bit, and watch it fly away in the horizon.

This is BADASS. Fold the triangles up a tad bit, and for the whole flight, NO MATTR WHAT, it stays upright and flies like a badass. Good job, whoever invented this.

those stripes compliment the shape :)

AWESOME.

A little long and hard to make, but worth it. You need to hold the wings to make it soar! It's BOSS!

Wow! Great plane! Definitely will get me an A+ on the project. Thanks struckbyanarrow.

@chimpface, the piranha is not a good design if you want it to fly high.

awesome cant believe any piece of paper could fly like this

I made it inside out and it flys just as good or better! Just sayin' because it took me 3 trys to get it right but if you mess up it doesnt matter!

Use the rear triangle corners as elevators. Bend them up a tad bit. Flies like the wind!!! BANG!!!

This was taken from the Klutz Book of top 10 paper planes. Thats where the decorative paper comes from. you can buy the book at most crafts shops (Michaels, etc.) This plane is called the hammer, and it is a dart plane. Klutz could actually sue you if you dont credit them.

They couldnt sue him. Im pretty sure a paper airplane isnt copy-righted.

But Klutz books are.
