    Great plane, great instructable. I folded some of the nose back inwards and cut off some of that abundant paper. It made the plane less noseheavy and even smoother in its flight

    Holy crap! I didn't do your "secondary wing stabilizers" (yet) but it still flies quite well. I was wondering where on the plane you would recommend using the tape. Also, the vents just seem so...cool.

    we here at the icanryme institute are proud of our many minutes of easy R and D we put in to this plane but seriously i designed it for a tech project. it works a bit better if you make it out of cardstock. and try adding more side stabilizers for fun.
