A fast, long range and easy-to-operate interceptor, the Hyperceptor is a great addition to anyone's air force inventory. It is what one may call the "MiG-21" of paper airplanes.

Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 8.5 by 11 inch Paper
Step 2: Begin Folding
Start making your Hyperceptor by folding it in half along its width. Then on one of the halves, fold the corner down to the half fold. Then on the same side, fold the other corner down to the half fold.
Step 3: Cover Fold Preparation
First, start this step by folding the paper in half along its width. Then pull the small top half above the X down over its corresponding section below.
Step 4: Cover Folding
Now that all the creases you need are in place, fold the paper in over itself to make the cover fold as shown. Pull both sides in and then have the surplus paper overlap and make a smaller rectangular section with a triangular front.
Step 5: Sweep and Security Folding
Pull down the corners so that they touch the center crease, whilst everything else does not. Repeat this on both sides. Then, pull the small triangle up above the corners.
Step 6: Wing Folding
It is now time to fold your Hyperceptor's wings. Pull the wings' leading edges down to the bottom of the fuselage. Once you've established the crease that will become the wing root, pull the wings up so that they have neither anhedral nor dihedral angle.
Step 7: Taping
Taping your Hyperceptor is very easy. Tape it at the front and back of its fuselage.
Step 8: Flight
Flying the Hyperceptor is very easy. Give it a fairly fast throw and it will go long distances at quite a fast pace. Enjoy!
