Introduction: How to Make the Skystreak Paper Airplane

About: I am someone who mass produces paper airplanes and am always developing new designs. I post regular updates on Twitter. Follow me there to keep up with the latest developments!

The Skystreak is a fast, long range flying wing paper airplane.

TAA USAF Designation: F85-1

Step 1: Materials

1 Piece of 8.5 by 11 inch Paper

Step 2: Start Folding

Fold the paper along its width. Then fold it in half again, to result in fourths. Then open the paper. You should have a paper divided into four.

Step 3: Folding the Top Down

Fold 3/4 of an inch down from the top. Repeat until you reach the mid-section. Fold the paper in half along the center line.

Step 4: Stabilizers

While the wing is folded in half, cut two small fins into the wing. The cut should be from 1 inch back from the trailing edge at a shallow angle, (less than 45 degrees), 3/4 inch into the wing. Then fold the fins up. Repeat on the other side. 

Step 5: Tape

Tape the previous fold down on the leading edge of the aircraft.

Step 6: Flight

Your aircraft is now finished. The Skystreak is launched by holding it along its center line and advancing it through the air forward slowly. Enjoy!

Step 7: Modifications

From the many variants this airframe can be made into, this is one:

TF85-1 Cadet: A basic trainer/demonstrator variant of the Skystreak with a fuselage. Skystreaks can be converted to this standard.
