Paper Hang-glider for a LEGO Man

Introduction: Paper Hang-glider for a LEGO Man

About: I like to build stuff that launches projectile and i love instructables

This is an awesome hang glider that is designed for a legoman it flies very well. It should take only five minutes to complete. First instrustable, Please rate and comment. Flies extremely well!!!

Step 1: Step #1


Get a piece of regular printer paper,(mine has already been folded up ignore it)

Step 2: Step #2

Fold the paper diagonally along the edge then unfold and fold the opposite way, then unfold again

Step 3: Step #3


This step is hard to explain so just follow the pictures

Step 4: Step #4

Fold down the nose until the tip touches the seam thats visible. Then fold up the tips so they are about 1 1/2 inches high like shown.

Step 5: Step #5

First tape down the nose to the seam, then tape the tips so they're more sturdy. Fold the wing tips as shown.

Step 6: Step #6

Now get a piece of fishing line thats 6 1/2  inches long and tape the ends to the vertical flaps as shown, make sure its nice an tight so your legoman does'nt die!!!

Step 7: Step #7

Finally, now find a way to attach the legoman to the fishing line. the harness I put on his legs was for display purposes so its not necessary only the neck one is necessary. Good luck and have fun flying it, please rate and comment.

If you staple the parts instead of taping them will it make a difference? I've got tape but I just wanna know. And this is GREAT btw!
