How to Make a Paper Airplane. The Flying Fish – Flies a lot! Airplane # 2
Hello youtube friends, today we will learn how to make this pretty paper airplane that flies very well. We will use a sheet of letter-size paper and reduce its width to three-quarters of its original width. Mark the center point of the upper edge. Now match the upper right corner with the mark we just made. Define the fold very well. Fold it several times back and forth. To weaken the paper and to be able to cut it easily. Now match top edge with left edge. Very carefully. And define the diagonal fold. Repeat the process very carefully on the right side. Turn the sheet vertically. Make a horizontal fold by the cross point of the diagonals. Open the sheet of paper and turn it vertically. Get the center line along the sheet. Open the sheet and we can fold it very easily. This way. To get this triangular shape. Match this lower right edge with the center line. Be accurate and press the fold. Repeat the process on the left side. Match this diagonal border with the center line. Press the fold very hard because the paper is very thick. Now match the top diagonal border with the center line. These folds are only guides to be able to shape the airplane. Repeat the process on the left side. The last guiding line is horizontal, and we achieve it by joining the upper vertex with the lower vertex. Press very hard, because the paper is very thick. Now, fold the paper this way. Following the horizontal line fold the top backwards. And we already have the head of our airplane. Fold our airplane along the vertical line, backwards. Very carefully match the edges, so that the figure is perfectly symmetrical. And the airplane will be very stable in its flight. Now, taking this vertex as a guide, make a horizontal fold, parallel to the lower edge. Turn the figure and match the wings. Open the figure and match the top edge with this vertical edge. Press very well to define one of the cut lines of the wing that we will do later. Now, taking the midpoint of this edge as a reference, make a right angle fold. This way. And so we get the other mark to cut the tail. This is the line where we are going to cut the silhouette of the airplane. Fold back and forth to weaken the paper and make the cut easier. In this case, I like to make the cut by hand because I like the airplane completely handmade. But, if you want, you can do it by cutting with scissors to make it much more polished. Now give position to the wings and tail, defining the folds very well. Open the figure, and we already have a beautiful airplane that flies very well. If you want to experience flight possibilities for this airplane, you can play with the tilt of the tail. If one side is tilted down, for example, the airplane can fly in a circle to the right or to the left. And, the best position for the plane to fly very stable, is a form of “V”, both in the wings and in the tail. I hope this video will serve you and that you enjoy launching this nice airplane to fly.
