Simple Paper Airplane Tutorial With Pictures- Dollie

Introduction:

The Dollie is a glider that is based on the standard glider. For this paper, however, the snout is bent over which makes the plane glide much better. The bent snout ensures a more top-heavy flight, which can prevent the plane from drifting too much upwards and not flying straight ahead. The instructions are just as simple as those of the standard glider and should easily be understood by everyone.

Step 1

Make a Triangle at the Top Edge

Lay the paper upright in front of you in a portrait position.

. And fold it in half. Crease the paper well and unfold.

Take the top tip of the paper plane and fold it down to the point where both the second layers meet each other.

Step 3

Make the Wings and Body

Make a wing by folding a portion of the top layer to the right.

Fold a portion of the left layer at the back. This will be the other wing. Now, orient the paper airplane such that you will face one flat side of the wings. The wings should point towards the right side.

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.
