Step by Step Guide to Making Paper Airplanes
Designed for Flight
Paper airplanes can be made into many shapes and sizes and can cover several different flight patterns. Some are designed for creative flight, some for distance, some for height. This particular model is great for distance flights, and with some variations, can be converted into some very creative flight patterns.
Tape a penny to the inside of the fuselage, or use paperclips or leaded tape to the outside. This will also alter the flight pattern. Changing the center of gravity can shorten or lengthen the flight.
