Origami is without a doubt one of the most universal hobbies on the planet. Whether an adult or a child, everyone finds in Japanese paper art a way to escape from worries and use their creative abilities.
As for the design of aircraft in the format of paper miniatures, its history begins back in 1930, when the co-founder of Lockheed Corporation put forward a proposal to test designs by launching their downsized paper copies.
If you want to add a high-speed prototype with good maneuverability to your origami design collection, this article is for you. This airplane was designed by an experienced craftsman and, with some simple maneuvering, is capable of performing truly mesmerizing tricks.
The process of plane creation requires only a sheet of paper, scissors, and a couple of minutes of free time. We strongly encourage you to give it a try, and you’ll be blown away by this simple assembly method and the finished result!
By eye, mark five and a half centimeters from the opposite corner. If desired, you can use a pencil and ruler.
Perform a similar folding process on the right side. As a result, the side edges of the triangles should align, giving the figure the appearance of a rhombus.
Fold the sides along the fold lines, so that the corner of the square forms a standing triangle. Then, lower its top, as shown in the photo.
Align the outer sides of the resulting triangle with the center line, pressing the fold well.
It’s time to launch your airplane prototype and enjoy the results of your labor. This model specializes in long stays in the air. By slightly adjusting the shape of the wings, you can achieve dead loops and planning along a circular trajectory. It might happen that you like it even more that way.
