Best Trick Paper Airplane – Instructions with Pictures


In this post, the tutorial will show you an advanced type of a  pointed glider. Due to the blunt snout and distinct shape, this paper airplane flies in an arc path. With a little practice, you can even throw it in a loop path. The aerobatic flying style of this airplane take s a lot of spacewhich is why it is recommended to fly this paper airplane outside.

The only thing missing is the winglets. To do this, fold the outer edge of the wings by about a cm or so.

Your paper plane is now ready. Have fun flying!

Extra Tips

  • Use a long strip of scotch tape and stick it under the fuselage of the paper airplane.
  • Paint your plane with cool details like stars on the wings, a flight number plate, and a cockpit.
  • If you want your paper airplane to fly even better, use another strip of scotch tape. Connect both wings with the strip so that they stay together in flight. If the wings stop falling apart, the air resistance is lower, and the arrow flies faster through the air.
