About: Typical deadmau5-inspired electronic music artist. Not doing anything good at the moment, mainly experimental crap and Sytrus fuckery.

This is one of the best paper airplanes that I've ever made. It is moderately simple to fold and a very good flier. It is a gentle glider with a "flat" front so if it ever crashes the front won't crinkle up like it would on a airplane with a pointy tip. TIP: If you ever have a Nerf war, you can put a Nerf velcro dart in The Nakamura Lock and throw it at someone. This is very fun.

You like? Well let's get foldin'.

There's a secret to making that particular plane fly better.  I'll let you look around for it.

Interesting, I've been making a very similar plane design I call the PhoeniX, or the Eagle X, which is like this but uses a much more simple and crisp wing design, which is also related to the Delta, a twist on the classic Dart.
