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.
