Introduction: How to Make the BEST Paper Stunt Plane/Glider
This design is not too well known (I THINK) and is a great stunt plane and glider.
Sorry for the blurry pics and also, this is my first Instructable.
All criticism/congrats are appreciated.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: What You Need
Paper (obviously) and a flat working surface
Step 2: First Folding! (YAY!)
Fold in half as accurately as you can and crease hard.
Open back up.
Step 3: Fold the Corners Down
Fold one corner at a time down (look in picture for how far to) and crease hard.
Open up and do the same to the other side.
Step 4: Flip & Fold
Read the title lol!
After flipping, fold the segment down so it lines up with the other lines.
Step 5: More Flipping and Folding
Flip over again and 'Pull the sides in... Look at the photos for help...
Step 6: Fold Up Top Layers Corners
Fold the top layers corners up to the top...
Step 7: Spin and Fold
Spin 180 degrees and fold the WHOLE top nose part down so that it reaches the folded paper line... If that makes sense...
Refer to photos for added bonus help!
Step 8: Folding in Half
Fold the plane in half with the chunky bit on the INSIDE.
Step 9: Folding the Wings
Fold the wings down on each side with a 2cm gap between the bottom of the plane and where the wing starts.
Step 10: The Finished Product and Tweaking It
Congratulations on making it this far!
Your plane is now ready for flight and tweaking!
Flaps on the edge of the wings can be added if your plane always wobbles or just fails.
On the back of the wings, 'upplets' or 'downlets' can be added to make it do stunts such as loops, barrel rolls, sharp turns and much much more! simply pinch the back of the wings and slightly fold it either up or down.
Examples: Fold both up and your plane will do loops.
Fold them opposite ways and your plane will either barrel roll or spin in a spiral (not a crash landing spiral, a good one)
