Origami Fun Flyer Airplane

Among the many types of origami art, paper aircraft creation has successfully emerged as an independent direction and recently firmly occupied its position.

Flying prototypes, which form the basis of model building, are in turn divided into high-speed, maneuverable, decorative, and long-distance oriented. The main character of this article belongs to the latter type.

To put together this somewhat grotesque, but no less funny representative of the air marathoners with a flight range of up to 10 meters, you only need a sheet of paper and a couple of minutes of free time.

Step 1

Place a sheet of paper vertically and bend it diagonally, aligning the top border with the side border.

Step 2

Expand the paper and repeat the folding from step 1 in a mirror image.

Step 3

Insert the triangles formed by the diagonals on the right and left inside. The blank should take the form of a “house”.

Step 4

Connect the corners at the base with the top of the figure. Press the folds well to facilitate the further process of the aircraft creation.

Step 5

Fold a couple of smaller triangles in half, aligning their sides.

Step 6

Straighten the edges to the original diamond-shaped state and make two vertical folds symmetrical relative to the central axis. You should have received a quadrilateral that is elongated on one end.

Step 7

Open the double-leaf diamond and bend it in this way from the bottom, connecting the edges on the center line.

Step 8

Fold the top edges along the marked folding lines. Please note that the paper should form perpendicular flaps at the intersection of the top and bottom sides.

Step 9

Fold the miniature triangles up.

Step 10

Turn your model over.

Step 11

Fold the top back along the bottom line of the small flaps, so that they lie flush with the main plane body. This is the nose of the prototype.

Step 12

Fold the figure in half.

Step 13

Visually draw an invisible diagonal in continuation of the hypotenuse of the nasal triangle and bend the wing along it.

Step 14

Do the same maneuver, turning the model over.

Observe the flight path of the finished glider prototype. If you notice that the airplane is diving down along an arched line, trim a pair of upward-curved flaps on the rear plane of the wings. Such a modification is capable of stabilizing flight when the center of mass shifts.
