Origami Gliding Airplane
A stunning airplane, the name of which already says a lot, is made using the origami technique. When designing this model, the craftsmen did not focus on speed, maneuverability, or unusual tricks. They focused their skills on making the plane glide smoothly through the air and cover great distances. Therefore, such an aircraft is ideal for launching from high-rise buildings, hills, and other elevations.
To make such an airplane you will need to prepare a sheet of A4 paper. In terms of difficulty level, this origami can be classified as medium – children may need your help.
Fold the top right corner down so that it is in the middle of the bottom edge of the left half of the sheet.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the upper left corner, folding and unfolding the paper in a similar manner.
Now, we’ll make a special fold that will help extend the flight of the plane: fold the paper along the dotted line.
Practice shows that it is best to launch this model gently and carefully so that it demonstrates all its abilities. It’s best to climb a little higher to make the flight really long: for example, launch it from a balcony.
