Origami Spy Plane

This is an excellent representative of paper planes! Its design is thought out to the smallest detail, which allows it to stay in the air for quite a long time. This requires calm weather and an experienced owner who will launch it high enough.

The plane was called “Spy” just because of its unusual abilities. Hanging in the air and hovering high above the ground, it seems to be conducting reconnaissance work, watching everything and everyone around it. Moreover, the duration of its stay in the air directly depends on the height it was able to achieve. The higher you fly the plane, the longer it will fly.

Step 1

For starters, you need to prepare a sheet of A4 paper (21×28 cm). You can take a smaller sheet, but the aspect ratio should remain the same.

Step 2

First, you need to fold the paper in half, then carefully crease the fold and unfold.

Step 3

Next, you would fold the bottom edge of the paper inward about 2.5 cm.

Step 4
Step 5

You need to fold the paper six more times in a similar way, as shown in the photo.

Step 6

Your next step would be rotating the paper 180 degrees and then flipping it over.

Step 7

Now, you should fold in half, folding the left side to the right.

Step 8

Stepping back from the fold by about 2.5 mm, you need to fold the paper to create the wing.

Step 9
Step 10

To get the second wing, you have to turn the figure over again and fold the second wing, also stepping away about 2.5 mm from the fold line.

Step 11
Step 12

Now, you need to finish the resulting wings. For this, you would bend the edge of the wing up, stepping back about 2 cm.

Step 13

It is necessary to turn over the paper. Repeating step 12, you would fold over the edge of the other wing so that they are symmetrical.

Step 14
Step 15

Gently opening the paper, you need to position the wings perpendicular to the body of the aircraft. Grasping the body with your fingers, you should lift the wings up a little, while their “fins” should be vertical.

Your “Spy” is ready to storm the sky! Feel free to launch it by throwing it straight or at an angle. You should not be afraid to use a little more power during the throw: the higher the plane rises, the longer it will stay in the air.
