Introduction: The Fastest Paper Plane You'll Ever Make
Launch a paper plane the fast way
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
1x60cm wooden rod
1x80cm string (not fishing line)
1xA4 sheet of paper
1xpair of scissors
Step 2: Making the Launcher
To make the launcher, make a knoch at the end of the rod and tie the string around it.
Step 3: Make the Loop
Tie any loop at the end as long as it doesn't tighten when pulled
Step 4: Make the Plane
Fold the paper in half.
Step 5: Point
Fold the two top corners to the center so that the ends make a point
Step 6: Pointier
Fold it again like before.
Step 7: Pointiest
Fold again as before.(Beware of the sharp point)
Step 8: Halve It!!
Fold it in half.
Step 9: Wings
Fold along the middle on both sides.
Step 10: Staples and Cuts
Staple the plane three times along where the wing fold is, once in the middle and on the very front and back. (Not on the rudder(the sticky outie bit at the end of the plane))
Cut the plane on the one third mark. (No need to be precise)
Step 11: Send the Plane SAILING.
Put the string ring on the knoch and put a large amount of strength on the rod(not too much) and let go of the plane. To make it go faster, instead of putting a large amount of strength on the rod, pull it forward as if doing the opposite of pulling up a fish.
I discovered this design when i thought of cracking a whip with a plane on the end of it. The first time I launched this plane, it traveled so fast that it became invisible but it was audible(can hear it). It ended up lodged up in an airvent 5 metres off the ground.
WARNING: NEVER LAUNCH THIS PLANE AT A LIVING OBJECT OR ANYTHING THAT CAN THINK FOR ITSELF OR LAUNCH IT INDOORS.
