Paper Airplane

Introduction: Paper Airplane

This paper airplane flies slowly and smoothly. all you need is a standard sized piece of paper.

Step 1: Fold in Half

fold the paper in half, (the long way) and pull it back so there is a crease through the center of the paper.

Step 2: Fold Front

Fold the front into an arrow-like shape. (see picture)

Step 3: Fold Front (again)


fold the front of the plane again so it has a steeper slope on the side. (see picture again)

Step 4: Fold Down

Now, fold the top down so the tip it at the bottom. (see picture)

Step 5: Fold Sides

now make two small slanted folds. (see picture)

Step 6: Fold Up

fold the tip back up. (see picture) this step may be confusing, so make sure to see the picture below.

Step 7: Fold in Half


fold the plane in half the long way. (see picture)

Step 8: Fold Out Wings

fold out the wings. (see picture) The plane is now finished. to launch, hold in the middle of bottom part and throw

    If it rolls to the right, add a slight upward curl to the rear of the left wing.

    If it rolls to the left, curl the right wing.

    Actually Kiteman, that is incorrect. If the airplane rolls to the right, the way to reverse or stop the roll is to add a slight upward curl to the rear of the right wing.

    The reason the plane would be rolling to the right in the first place is that there is more lift from the left wing. Adding an upward curl to the left wing would only increase the roll. 

    The inverse applies to a roll to the left.

    You're thinking of turns, not rolls.

    Rolls can evolve into turns, but my statements are indeed on rolls. If one looks at an aileron roll--(commonly known as a "barrel roll") for example, it is initiated by raising one wings aileron and simultaneously dropping the other. It is ended by reversing this action.

    I cut ailerons for it but the roll was still bad.
