fold down wings,
and put on stableizers if needed!

Step 3: Flaps

you may want to put flaps on the plane if you want to steer it,just cut inch to a 1/2 inch flaps on the back.

(remember,flap up,that wing goes up,flap down,that wing goes down,example,both flaps up,the plane goes up)

Step 4: Blunt-nosed Plane

fold corner over a little off-center,

this is a more complicated plane that has a tail fin on the back and is totally customisable!
to make it you need to:
make a square by folding diagnaly and cutting off extra paper on the bottom,
then fold in half,(after you unfold it!)
fold down front corners,
fold down wings,
cut the tail fin by cutting up to the top of the wings,
fold the tail fin out.
