New Way to Fold the Flying Cylinder | No Tape

Introduction: New Way to Fold the Flying Cylinder | No Tape

About: Paper Airplane Designer

INTRODUCTION:The Flying Cylinder is one of the weirdest paper airplanes I ever know. I saw many versions of this plane, but none of them match my expectation. all versions need tape to stable the body, but doing so breaks the rule of origami. Other version are too big and soft to hold on my hand, so I decided to create my own version. However, I don't own the copyright of this plane in any mean.

HISTORY of the Flying Cylinder and Paper Gyroscope:
The Flying Cylinder was invented by Dale H. Klahn, Gary L. Upham in 1979. Jack Vegas is believed the inventor of the flying paper gyroscope as he first introduced the plane in 2008. It soon became on of the most impressive paper airplane ever. However, I found someone had made the plane before 2008. Thus, I am not 100% sure if  Jack Vegas was the inventor of this plane.( Please, correct the info if  it is incorrect)
