Unusual paper airplane

Fast-flying paper airplane
This paper airplane is a dart, which means that it flies fast and you can throw it as hard as you want. It also looks quite impressive. Enjoy.
This paper airplane's nose tends to break when it hist a wall or the ground. To prevent this, you can fold it in so that the nose is more flat. This usually doesn't affect the flight, or at least it doesn't seem to.

Paper airplanes: categories
In this post, I'm going to write the most common categories in which paper airplanes are divided. Those are:
- Gliders: Those paper airplanes usually have a long wingspan. You just throw them gently and they glide smoothly for a good distance and flight duration.
- Darts: Those paper airplanes can be thrown with a lot of strength. They fly fast and can fly for a long distance. However, they don't stay aloft for too long.
- Others: There might be paper airplanes that combine characteristics of both categories. You canthrow them hard or gently and will fly well either way.

Compact paper airplane
Here is a new paper airplane design I came up with. It flies quite well, although sometimes it tends to be unstable in the air. It's a little hard to make, but I think it's worth it, since it is very small and easy to put away. It may even fit in some pockets. If you have any question about the instructions, don't hesitate to leave a comment.

Oh, and don't forget to sign my guestbook. Any suggestions are welcome. I hope you like my paper airplanes.

Adjust your paper airplanes - part 2
Now, I'm going to write about horizontal deviation. When your paper airplane turns right or left, do as the diagram to the left indicates. The plane will turn towards the direction where you will turn the body. The plane of the diagram will turn right. So, if your paper airplane turns right, turn the body towards left and vice versa. I have also found out that if you bent one wing towards up (see "Adjust your paper airplane - part 1"), the paper airplane will turn towards that wing's direction.
That's it for now. If there is a point that I didn't cover, don't hesitate to leave a comment.

Adjusting your paper airplane - Part 1
Does your paper airplane have flying problems? There are some ways to solve the problem. Here, I'm going to write about the vertical deviation.
Problem: The airplane turns upwards. To fix this, bend both wings towards down, as indicated in dig. 1.
Problem: The airplane turns downwards. To fix this, bend both wings towards up, as indicated in dig. 2.
I have also figured out that folding both wings towards up so that the airplane has a "Y" shape works quite well.
In the next part of this mini article, I'm going to write about horizontal deviation.

Paper airplane ideas
Welcome to my blog, paper airplane ideas. Here, I will give instructions to construct various styles of paper airplanes.
So here is the first design that I'm posting. This paper airplane is a glider that flies best indoors. Outdoors, the wind will blow it out of its path very easily.
Pros: It is easy to adjust.
You can throw it as hard as you like.
It looks good.
Cons: There is one tricky fold in it (step 5).
Tips: Right after you make it, it might go upwards. To fix this, bend its wings towards down and you're set.
That's it for now. Hopefully I'll post more designs of paper airplanes in the future.
