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.
