Paper planes #1

As the number in post's topic implies, this is just the first part of quick tutorials showing how to build various paper planes



 So far I've tried out both gliders, they fly well, but there certainly must be some better ones.

  3. Only to be sure; do they fly? I mean, they have wings, the should at least move for a while. Is just that I wonder if they are aerodynamic enough to impress people and stuff.

    If you get one of how to do a Transformer that goes into vehicle and autobot/decepticon mode, it would be awesome!

  4. I remember making these in school, mine never flew right. I'll have to try these designs to see if the work better than mine.

  5. lol I only ever had one way of building a paper plane and it was also the simplest and seemed the most efficient.

    But I'll remember these designs for when an opportunity comes to show off my paper plane skills. :P

  8. The best way is to turn the paper sideways. I found its so cool that way.

  9. heh, this post just made me have a moment of nostalgia pertaining to some older book or magazine that had many tutorials on how to construct different paper airplanes and they supplied the paper, so one of them was very long, had black and hellow stripes, and was called "the hornet," I think; does anyone else remember a book or magazine that had that stuff in it?

  21. I actually made a booklet about how to make paper planes for an art project. Each page was both the instructions, as well as the paper to make it. At the end, after no planes were left to be made, there would no longer be a booklet.
