Paper planes #6: The Duck

That's the last one for a while, I hope I didn't bore you with all those paper planes :) I just though it'd be a good idea to finish what I've started.

You have to release it gently to launch. It's pretty delicate.

Paper planes #5: The Condor

As promised, here's another one, based on Canada Goose construction

By the way, I've tried out the Canada Goose one, It flies pretty well, but I guess that the gliders I've shown you in my first post abut paper planes fly better. Way btter.

Paper planes #4: The Canada Goose base and the plane itself

I've figured that since I've started making posts about paper planes I might as well write about all of those which I now about. Today we're gonna make the Canada Goose base, which can be used to make 3 diffrent paper planes.

That's the base. Now, the plane itself


I haven't tried it out yet, but I surely will sometime. Expect a next post about paper plaes soon :)

Paper planes #3: The Moth

To be perfectly honest, I find making paper planes very interesting, especially since I've recently found about two dozen more of incredibly designed ones. I assure you, that they all look great and fly well. Oh, by the way, lines (and only lines) on these pictures mean that the paper should be folded "forward" (like a book, I really hope you know what I mean), while line-dot-dot think is where you fold the paper in the opposite direction, call it  "backwards". If you fold one paper plane using the tutorials posted here, you'll know exactly what to do :)

Here's another new one.

I'd like to know your opinion about the way I put images in my posts... I can't think of a way to put them all in one piece. If anybody has an idea how to help me, I'd be grateful.

Paper planes #2: The Deltry

Today I'd like to show you an amazing paper plane my friend told me about. We used an A3 sheet of paper to make one and we tried it out on the 10th floor. It managed to fly about 200-250 meters, then we lost it... I guess that's more than enough to prove that it's simply great!

Sadly, my computers skills suck badly, so I didn't know how to arrange the pictures in columns or something... Well, at least it's easily readible now :)

Oh, I forgot to mention that today there was a perfect weather for trying out paper planes since there was pretty much no wind at all. I'd say it was something about 1m/s or something.
