Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: First, Draw It


The measures are approximate, need not be accurate.

Mi finger and the pen there are as a reference

Step 2: Cut

With scissors or a cutter, cut the drawing by continuous lines

The greyed triangle under the body it is waste.

Step 3: Folding and Shaping

Here I used Scotch tape, but it is not necessary if the cuttings are well done.

Step 4: Balancing and Final

Putting the fingers under the central line of the wings, the body of the aircraft must be horizontal.

Add / Remove weight in the nose to achieve it.


And this is all. The plane must fly 3 or 4 meters. That is no small thing, considering the size.

    When he said to speak proper english, he probably didnt want you to use slang words such as "u." Just pointing that out

    The objective of this Instructable is to make the people to think, to do and to experiment. That is much more funny than receive the answer.

    One (left of the image) is for provide a slot to support the wings. The other is the only way to cut the wings, without being separate from fuselage.

    If you make the glider, you understand it. It is easier to do than explain.

    Thanks for your comment.

    You have to do it alignment and balancing, in that there can be no secrets. If I were near you, sure this is solved in 3 seconds. I start from the assumption that you have worked neatly.

    Please provide a few more details: what connects the tail to the fuselage? Or, is it one continuous piece, twisted? is the fuselage folded lengthwise to make it more rigid? My attempts have failed. thanks- -m
