How to Create the Submarine Paper Airplane

Introduction: How to Create the Submarine Paper Airplane

This paper airplane was inspired by another helpful and amazing tutorial on Instructables. This one was entitled "The Submarine" because of its rectangular design and its moves, slow but accurate.

Just with any kind of A4 paper and your handy hands, you're ready to go !

Step 1: Fold It !

Step 1: Start with a new A4 paper with any color or texture you want! In this tutorial, we used a fine white A4 paper to make sure you are able to see our steps clearly.

Step 2: Fold the paper in half and then unfold it. Make sure it is nicely folded because it will decide the accuracy of the plane flight.

Step 3: Fold 2 corners into the center of the paper. Make sure the hem line up straight with the line we folded earlier.

Step 4: Fold the pointed end to the corners of two right angles as it touches the hemline of the triangle, then unfold it.

Step 5: Fold the big triangle down.

Step 6: Fold the right corner into the middle. Make sure it touches the center line.

Step 7: Do the same thing with the left corner

Step 8: Fold "the end of the big triangle in step 4" over the corners

Step 9: Fold it in half

Step 10 + 11: Fold the wings to make right angles at the head of the plane

Step 12: Fold the wing up as registered with the underside of the aircraft.


Step 2: Launch

Just launch it and it will make you satisfied !
