PINARIA LOCK PAPER PLANE is a mofied and better version of the famous nakamura lock.I made this because i thought the famous nakamura lock is great and far flying paper plane. i've made the nakamura lock paper plane about a dozen times and they all didn't work as well as it has been described on the instructables.Than, a few minutes after trying to modified it, i came up with the pinaria lock paper plane.I promise that this plane will go at least 15 ft with ease.It's also good for long range and air time battle.
Step 1: Step 1 the Materials Instruction
1. Take your paper and fold it along its length.
2. Pull the corners in and fold them into the center.
3. Pull the top down along the bottom of the previous corner folds.
4. Pull the corners in, however not as much as before making the nose blunt. Repeat on the other side. Then pull the triangle up towards the nose over the two folds.
5.From the previous orientation, fold the aircraft along its center line but, do it on its clean side. Then pull the leading edge down to the bottom of the aircraft along the center line. Repeat on the other side.
Step 2: Taping
Step 3: Modifications
some modification you can make:
3.Add an electronic warfare tail
4.Add an usual rip tail (tail made just by riping/cutting)
5.Add a small fin at the blunt nose.
note:these are the pics of the modification (can be used for the PINARIA or NAKAMURA LOCK PAPER PLANE)
HOW TO THROW IT:Before you throw, make sure that the wings are Y shaped if you look it from the rear.Then throw it like a dart but with less power at a 45 degrees angle.
please rate and comments, i want to know what do you guys think about this instructables........
