Introduction: Stiletto Paper Airplane
This plane is an idea off of the Wacky Flier but the Stiletto can be thrown much harder and faster than the Wacky Flier.
Step 1: Materials
-14"X8.5" sheet of paper
-hands that are ready to fold
Step 2: Fold Middle
Fold down the middle lengthwise then unfold
Step 3: Fold Corners, Then Edges
Fold both corners to the middle, then take the newly creased edges and fold to the middle. Unfold all.
Step 4: Fold, Inverse Fold
Line the previous crease with the middle then inverse fold the crease lined up with the middle to the outside. Do the same with the other side.
Step 5: Dog Ears
Fold both top edges down along the creases to create a 90 degree angle. Refer to the pictures. Take one of the corners on the top flap (created from the previous fold) and bring the corner upward so both edges line up. Inverse fold to underneath. Do the same for the other side.
Step 6: The Nose, or the Lack Thereof
Fold from point to point horizontally to make the top layer into a 45-90-45 triangle. Fold tip to top edge. Fold the top edge down along the previous crease thus creating a new one. Unfold all. There should be three new, horizontal creases.
Step 7: Refold Front, But in a Different Manner
Take the previous crease and refold along it, creating the top edge. Next, fold the top edge to the bottom crease closer to the tip. Fold the tip up. Almost done
Step 8: Wings
Fold the wings, by matching the top edges with the bottom edge.
Step 9: Forming the Loop... and Finished
Curl front. Insert into pocket and pinch leading edge of the tube firmly.
Now you have created the second most deadliest dart plane in my collection. Give it a hard chuck and watch it soar 70+ feet! My best dart plane is the Blackbird. I suggest when you get the chance you should check that out.
