Origami V-Wing Airplane

The v-shaped airplane has large wings and a swept-back silhouette. It can rightfully take its place among the far-flung, long-flying paper gliders. The design of the model is reminiscent of the powerful and spacious newest experimental passenger aircraft, which has a double cabin, cargo compartments, and fuel tanks directly in the wings. Beginner paper aircraft designers will have to spend a little time thinking about the design and practicing the assembly, but attention to detail and diligence will help them overcome the difficulties.

To make it, you need origami paper. It is worth recalling that an origami sheet of paper has the shape of a square with equal sides. If you don’t have a ready-made square on hand, you’ll have to use a ruler and scissors. Measure the smaller side of the existing paper and measure the same lengths on the two long sides, connect them with a straight line, and cut. The method of obtaining a square using the diagonal fold method will not work because this airplane model does not require a diagonal fold.

Step 1

Mark the line of the base of the body, folding the paper in half and opening it back.

Step 2
Step 3

Position the marked line vertically.

Step 4

Fold a triangle with the top in the middle of the upper side of the square.

Step 5
Step 6

Fold the top down to the base line of the triangle.

Step 7

Fold the sides from the center of the figure to the center line of the base equally on both sides.

Step 8

Compare the result with the illustration.

Step 9

Turn the figure over and fold along the center line.

Step 10

Turn the figure to the left so that the base fold is at the top.

Step 11

Bend the wing up. The fold line should connect the top and the point located on the third part of the right side of the figure. Compare your result with the illustration.

Step 12

Turn the figure over and bend the second wing, aligning the corners and lines.

Step 13
Step 14

Smooth out all the folds and straighten the wings.

Step 15

Everything worked out!

This airplane is easy to fly even for novice pilots. Testing the finished model will help adjust the wing angles to eliminate rolling. Cruising speed and long-distance flight are guaranteed by a smooth arm swing with moderate force and speed. The glider silently soars in the air at a distance of more than 10 meters. This is a very respectable result for paper models.
