No, This Is the Absolute Greatest and Easiest to Make Paper Airplane, No Really, Try It!




This instructable gives you detailed instructions as to the creation of the WORLDS BEST PAPER AIRPLANE

Step 1: The Basic Start

First, you fold a peice of 8.5X11 paper in half, crease it, and reopen it.
Then, you flip it over so that the fold is mountain (/\) side up.
Next you fold the top corners (at 45 degree angles) towards the /\ crease.

Step 2: Make the Wings

Flip the plane over so the plane is pointing away from you, and the center crease is in a valley orientation (v).
Now, fold the wings so that the once-leading edges of the wing are one mm from the v crease, and crease.
Flip the plane over, and bend the nose in half, under the front, and crease.
Flip back over, and fold one whole side so that the leading edge is touching the bottom of the plane, crease, repeat on the other side, and there are your wings

Step 3: Finish the Plane (add Tail)

Open the wings, and make a cut one inch from the rear of the plane on the bottom of the v slanting slightly forward, and push it up to convert it from a v to an /\, and crease it so it stays up strait.
Fold the wings back down, and perk the up a little, so that the still face downwards slightly, but aren't facing up.

Step 4: Give It a Slow to Moderate Throw!

the plane is complete, and flies very well at many speeds. Just throw, and let go right where you want it to fly (it goes in almost exactly straight flight paths. Watch the video to see how well it goes!
This is my first instructables, criticism and compliments welcome.
