    This is actually a very old paper airplane design. My father's father taught him how to make it in the 60's. So much for the money US taxpayers are pumping into the Air Force.

    If you'll search the archives you'll find this plane several times with comments about how you can greatly improve its flying.

    yes, i have found that if you chamber the wings up, and make the triangle shaped lock smaller, it will performe a high loop when thrown into the wind. there, it will slowly glide unbelivably slowly, almost waking pace with a very small decent rate. total flight: about 15 seconds.

    That's the trouble with paper 'planes - the same design will have many different names, frequently along the lines of "this cool plane my uncle taught me when I was eight", which makes it very hard to search to see if it's been done before.
