Paper airplanes are fantastic: they're easy to make from simple materials. Just grab a sheet of paper and maybe scissors, tape, or a paperclip and you're ready to go.

There are as many great designs as there are paper airplane makers, and we love them all. Do you have a favorite design that flies farther, faster, or in exciting loops? What cool tips and tweaks work best for you? We want to know!

Enter the Toss It! Speed Contest, and show us how to make an awesome paper airplane!

Make a good Instructable that clearly shows how to make a paper airplane, and embed a video of your plane in flight. You can't just say it's the best, you have to show us!
