Step 1: Supplies

All you need is a sheet of paper

Step 2: Step 1

Fold sheet of paper in half the long way, then fold back.

Step 3: Step 2

Now, you should have a crease running down the middle, fold the two top corners in to that fold.

Step 4: Step 3

Now, go up about an inch from the bottom of the triangle at the top and fold the triangle down.

Step 5: Step 4

Now do the same thing you did in step 2, fold the corners down,t should end up looking like the picture. Then fold in half so that the flaps point outward.

Step 6: Step 5

Now fold what you have in half, then go up about a half an inch to 1 inch and fold one half down, and mirror on other half. Or,just make wings how you always do with paper airplanes because that's what I'm poorly explaining.

Step 7: Throwing

This paper airplane will fly basicaly however you throw it wether that be hard or soft.

    (I forget), mainly meant to link the two together. The large wing surface area should help to keep it up, but it will also add a lot of drag - how far can you get it to go?

    I think about 50 feet. But I had ideal weather conditions outside so that probably helped.
