Which one of your gliders is the most efficient with something like an A4 page book? I ca't find any cardboard without holes in... (I build k'nex guns...)

The A4 weight paper would result in a design similar to the fast flying and relatively pitch unstable paper airplane walkalong glider. Regular paper has too high a mass per unit area. I'd recommend waxed tissue paper (available at florist shops) and the design improvements incorporated in the indoor paper airplane walkalong glider design.

Can you PLEASE make an ible on how to make a walkalong glider? Not a tumblewing or another dead butterfly, but a nice glider thingy.

Here's a just published instructable on a paper airplane walkalong glider:

Wow, thanks! That was exactly what I was looking for.

Thank you for your enthusiasm. I guess what you mean is the X-surfer or Z-surfer design? Bear in mind the flying wing designs require quite a bit of continual ballast adjustment, like before each flight. Until I pull together the instructable, please see the directions for the X-surfer, Z-surferand jumbo flying wing walkalong gliders.
