Introduction: Paper Plane: the Piranha

The Piranha is a paper aeroplane specifically designed for short range speed and accuracy. It produces virtually no lift and cannot glide.

Step 1:

Take one A4 piece of paper. Fold the piece of paper in half longways, then unfold.

Step 2:

Fold the corners at one end of the paper so they meet the center line. Use the fold you have created as a guide line

Step 3:

Fold the tip of the plane back so it meets the points where the other folds cross.

Step 4:

Now fold the corners in again. However, do not start the fold exactly on at the tip, and do not fold all the way to the center line. Leave a tiny gap between the centre line and the folds.

Step 5:

Fold in once more

Step 6:

Refold along the center line

Step 7:

Fold along the yellow line on both sides of the paper

Step 8:

Fold along the yellow line on both sides of the paper

Step 9:

Fold along the yellow line on both sides of the paper

Step 10:

Fold up the wings

Step 11:

Fold up the fins

Step 12:

And you're done.
