Unfold your paper plane and fix the protruding wing halves to the wing using only small strips of tape.
The world record paper airplane is now ready. Have fun flying!
Let me know how far your paper aplane went. Comment down below!

Extra Tips

  • 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.

  1. I found a tape that’s lighter than others and the wind was perfect. I let my paper airplane fly and it went farther and farther! Totally less than the world record but it was pretty far – I’d say 50 something meters! only happened once

  2. Mine flew pretty far, thanks for the guide

  3. SOmetimes what you need is simplicity! This is a solid plane.

  4. My sister likes it. It didn’t flew far though but it’s because she’s young. I decided not to throw the plane because she might be bothered if the plane would fly farther 😕

  5. My plane flew to far and went over the fence! – I’m afraid to get it. 5 stars though!
