Both fast, and long range the Phantom paper airplane is also quite versatile with its ability to fly at low speeds. It is a development of the Nakamura/Super Dart with a larger wing.
TAA USAF Designation: F140-1 (originally F12-1XL)
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 8.5 by 11 inch Paper
Scissors (for advanced models and modifications)
Step 2: Length and Corner Folding
Take your paper and fold it along its length. Then pull the corners in and fold them into the center.
Step 3: Nose and Security Folding
Pull the nose down along the bottom of the corner folds. Then pull the corners into the center but not completely. Then pull the small triangle that remains over the two folds.
Step 4: Fold the Wings
Fold your Phantom's wing down from the fuselage's front bottom to the other side. When doing so, the planes wing should only just pass over the security fold triangle. Repeat on the other side.
Step 5: Taping
The Phantom is a very low cost plane as it requires only one piece of tape be applied at its rear.
Step 6: Flight
No different from most other darts in general, the Phantom is a plane capable of high speed and long range. It is different however, in its ability to fly at slower speeds.
At launch, give it a medium to high speed throw for maximum range and speed. For slow flight only a medium speed throw is needed.
