Tips For Building A Paper Airplane

  • Building paper airplanes is easy, fun and extremely cheap - all you need is some paper (an old math test or letters from your ex-girlfriend/boyfriend work great), a pair of hands and a smooth surface.
  • Make Good Folds - A good plane starts with good folding. Take your time and make sure your folds are smooth and even. Sloppy folds = crappy plane.
  • Check Your Symmetry - Planes should be even on both sides. The left wing should mirror the right wing. If you fold your plane so that one side is different from the other, it won't fly straight.
  • Check and Tweak - If your first plane doesn't fly great, tweak the wings and make sure the plane is even.
  • If Your Plane Crashes, Start Over - You can always find more paper - so if you're first plane doesn't work out, build another one.
