    I came across this on digg. It shows you how to make a really cool paper plane. I've never seen one like this before and it flys amazingly well!

    All you need is a sheet of A4. "why not have a go?" :D

    Saw this on Digg aswell, I tried to make it and got frustrated and screwed the paper up. I fail at simple instructions.

    As the page says, watch the google video. Makes that part much easier.

    Yer I made that along with others when I was really bored during study leave. I couldn't be bothered to go outside to test it though, so it only got to fly in my bedroom, although I could tell it flew well.

    If you have the floppy diamond that's 2 sheets thick (as shown in picture 15), fold the left half in, so that the bottom left side of the diamond is in line with the plane's centre line.

    I just made another one out of blue card. It's nice and rigid but a bit too heavy at the front. :(

    I haven't got a big enough space to test it in, because it spins all over the place but floats well...hmm.... :cool:
