Origami Buzz Airplane

It’s not quite what you might think. Unfortunately, paper planes that make sounds have not yet been invented. This model was nicknamed “Buzzing” because of its external resemblance to a fly or some other insect.

You should not let this comparison confuse you. It doesn’t affect the speed of its flight. On average, this aircraft flies 6–7 meters in 2.5 seconds.

In order to fold such a paper plane, you will need an A4 sheet and a little time. This origami is quite simple, but it belongs to the average level of complexity because, in the last stages, it becomes quite difficult to bend the paper.

Step 1

Prepare an A4 (21×28 cm) sheet of paper and place it horizontally.

Step 2

Fold the paper in half, crease the fold, and unfold.

Step 3
Step 4

Alternately bend the upper right and left corners to the center so that their upper borders are on the fold line.

Step 5
Step 6

Bend the top corner of the figure down so that it coincides with the edges of the newly folded corners in the central part.

Step 7

Now, the side upper sides need to be folded inward so that their edges converge on the midline.

Step 8
Step 9

The figure is already somewhat reminiscent of a fly, right?

Step 10

Let’s bend its upper part back a little, about 1 cm. At this stage, it is quite difficult to bend the paper, so carefully crease each fold.

Step 11

Fold the figure in half, connecting the future wings together.

Step 12

Finally, it’s time to create the wings of our plane. For this, you need to fold the paper along the dotted line.

Step 13

Now, turn the figure over and fold the second wing symmetrically.

Step 14
Step 15
Step 16

Your “Buzzing” plane is ready!

Step 17

You can use some glue or double-sided tape to help hold the wings together. Try launching the plane softly at first, then sharply, straight, or at an angle. This will allow you to understand which method is right for you.
