Origami Star Wing Airplane

This aircraft model has long wings and a small body. Therefore, it is a bit clumsy in flight and constantly requires adjustments to its wings. However, we must admit that it looks amazing! On its wings, you can see beautiful folds and lines that to some resemble the rays of a star, hence its name. Also, by experimenting with bends, you can achieve unusual tricks from it.

Here are some tips before you start assembling the airplane. You should not forget to carefully crease all the folds of the paper to ensure that your airplane not only turns out neat and beautiful but can also withstand multiple flights. You also need to pay attention to the angle at which the flaps come out from the wings. This angle should be as close to a straight angle (90 degrees) as possible. You can attach a paperclip to the nose of the plane to move the center of gravity forward a little. This way the plane will become more controllable and accurate.
