boys flying paper airplanesStumbling on this page was like finding some great secret. We've been making paper airplanes since we were young and are forever perfecting the design in search of the perfect plane. My airplanes are sadly the ones heading straight for nose dives, but my brothers could create some pretty spectacular flying machines. My husband folds airplanes for our boys. He tweaks the nose and wings trying to get things just right, but in the end, it's just a paper airplane and as good as any other, until now. This airplane design models a real plane and is sure to be the best flyer you've tried.

Everything is considered in this design, managing the placement of the center of gravity, taking into account wind variations and preventing wingtip vortex. This is one of the most complicated designs I've seen, but the instructions are carefully detailed, or you can use the video tutorial.

Once you've built the plane it's ready to take it's first flight. Here you'll learn about the pre-flight inspection, flying techniques and fine tuning your plane. Your new paper airplane design is sure to catch some attention. Do you think this is in fact the best paper airplane design or do you have another secret? Let us know what designs you favor or how you'd modify this one.
