Origami Uranus Arc III Airplane

Nicolas Baudier is a French origami master. This art has spread throughout the world, so new figures began to be invented not only in Japan. “Uranus III” is one of the latest modifications of his famous origami “Uranus” (“Uranus Arc I”). Each subsequent model became faster and easier to manage until finally, the Uranus III appeared.

This origami is perfectly completed and impresses with its abilities. The main distinguishing features of such an aircraft are the duration of the flight and record-breaking long distances. Don’t believe it? Let’s move on to the assembly as soon as possible, so that you can see it for yourself.

According to tradition, to fold the plane using the origami technique, you need an A4 (21×28 cm) sheet of paper. You can use colored paper to make the plane more visible in the sky, fun, and unique.

Step 1

Fold the paper in half lengthwise.

Step 2

Crease the fold well and unfold.

Step 3

Alternately fold the two upper corners to the center fold line.

Step 4

Now, bend the right and left sides to the midline.

Step 5
Step 6

Bend the top corner down to match the bottom edge of the paper.

Step 7

Turn over the paper before proceeding to the next step.

Step 8

Next, you need to fold the top side corners inward. Be careful as the side edges of the corners should be parallel to the bottom edge of the figure.

Step 9

Bend the top inward as shown in the photo. The triangle located at the back should be outside at the top.

Step 10

Turn the shape over again and fold in half along the center line.

Step 11
Step 12

Fold the wing along the dotted line.

Step 13

Make sure that the lower edges of the wing and the body of the aircraft match.

Step 14

Turn the paper over and fold the second wing symmetrically.

Step 15
Step 16

Now, open the wings and bend their edges inward, as shown in the photo.

Step 17
Step 18

Perfect! The plane is ready!

The wings still require a few small tweaks. They should be slightly bent upwards. Their fins, on the contrary, should stand straight, parallel to the body. You can throw the plane straight or slightly up at an angle. Enjoy!
