I've been making this airplane since I was a kid. My uncle taught it to me and my brothers about 35 years ago. You can use heavier paper for a more stable flight, tear a tail fin on it for loops or even make one as small as about one inch and still have it fly. The only drawback to it is once you nosedive this plane you lose any stability, but it's such a simple design that you can just as easily whip another one up in less than a minute and keep going.
