good instructable but... you should have flat tips at the end of the plane like paper-pro's instructable. you have the fake design. one that has been confused with the real one. plus this one barely flies. one again nice instructable easy to follow too.

well i like the design but it does not fly very well, as soon as i let go it go's straight for while while then turns and nose dives. try adding stabilizers, which are slits at the back of the paper airplane. they help striaghten the flight path! cool though
