Introduction: How to Make the Best Paper Airplane the Harrier

About: Age: 15 Name: Tanner Grade: 10'th (sophomore) Now, you must realize that i created this account several years ago and I did not have the same hobbies, tastes and general knowledge that I have now. But even ...

in this Instructable I will show you how to make a really good paper airplane i have pondered and wondered if this is really the best but i have recently done some tests and my conclusion was that yes this was the best paper airplane. the farthest i have gotten this plane to go is 112 feet!!!

Step 1: Fold in Half

Fold in half so that the longer sides are perpendicular and are the closest to being in half.

Step 2: Fold the Cockpit

fold the cockpit so that it kind of looks like an arrow if those flaps aren't perfectly aligned that is o.k. for that is what makes the fly so well.

Step 3: Fold the Cockpit Down

fold the cockpit down so that the ends of the arrow thing are at the edge.

Step 4: Fold Part of the Arrow Down Again

fold part of the arrow down so that there is roughly a half an inch left down.

Step 5: Fold the 1/2 Inch Upward

it's simple just fold the 1/2 inch little flap up.

Step 6: Now Fold the Half Up

fold the plane in half so that the 1/2 inch flap is on the bottom.

Step 7: Fold the Wings

no fold the wings so that the wings come to the bottom and the bottom of the plane is quite slanted

Step 8: Fold the Wings Up for You're Plane

now you have you're finished plane if it flies down fold the back of the wings up but your plane should fly really well hold the plane where your 1/2 inch flap and hold it slightly upward.

    why is your name blubber cause I love that name❤️

    When I was in 5th grade, my uncle showed me how to make this plane, and my friend and I used to have contests flying them out on the playground at lunch. Our best results came from stacking a neatly folded one with slightly wider wings on top of a more sloppy plane with a narrower wingspan and throwing the stack at a steep upward angle into the wind. The extra mass of the second plane helped us get more inertia and altitude, and then when they separated, the "launcher" would generally spiral down in a nosedive, while the "glider" would soar beautifully across the soccer field. On a good day with just the right breeze and a lucky thermal, we managed flights well over a hundred yards (clear from one end of the soccer pitch past the other). Thanks for resurrecting these memories!

    this plane worked great I am in a science class and we are building planes and seeing which goes farther this plane won and I love it.

    Same about the Sceince class we are in Science Class but we didn't do a compittion

    hey my airplane was awesome
