Thank you for taking a look at the NK DoubleDart paper airplane!
The NK DoubleDart paper airplane has a special "doubled-over' design effect on the front, which not only adds an interesting aesthetic characteristic but also adds a more streamlined shape for the wings. This allows the craft to have a more smooth and accurate flight.
Following are the steps to build the airplane.

Step 1: Paper
To build this airplane you will only need one piece of paper.
Step 2: Folds 1-5
Take your paper and set in landscape (sideways) format. Next, fold it in half "hamburger style" (shortways). Next, fold the top corners down to the center line, leaving a small amount of unfolded paper between the two top sides. Next, fold over the two new top corners, this time bringing the top of the paper to a point.
Step 3: Folds 6 and 7
Fold the paper in half again and then do a basic "M" fold to create wings.
Step 4: Pushing in the Back
Pushing in the back of the airplane accomplishes three things:
-It makes the plane sturdier.
-It makes the plane more compact and aesthetically pleasing.
-It creates weight towards the back of the plane, causing the plane to naturally lift itself up into the air.
To do this, push the bottom of the back center paper up into and between the wings as shown. Try to make the fold even and symmetrical on both sides. Push in until the paper reaches the middle of the interior of the plane.
Step 5: Done!!!
Congratulations! You now have your own NK DoubleDart paper airplane! Enjoy!
