I made the initial flight test after building one out of plain 8.5 x 11 inch copy paper. After I figured out "how" to fly it, it pretty much flew out about 10 meters straight, did a full 10 meter loop, straight for another 15-20 meters and then angled right and came back to me. I duplicated this about 6 times to the amazement of our 4-yr old. The seventh time I got the plane stuck about 15 meters up a tree, where it still sits now.
Made a second plane out of 12 x 18 inch construction paper which resulted in a heavier plane, obviously.
The second flight test resulted in different results. This plane flew twice as far as the original and almost like a funnel would fly up to about 25 meters and then slowly cirle back down.
It "is" the best paper airplane I've ever made. Don't remember having instructions like this when I was in school!!!!
Now I need a bigger field to fly it because it's flying outside the parameters of my yard now!!
One thing is for certain...a slight breeze will skew the results dramatically and to the extremes distance wish, so be prepared to lose alot of the planes. My second one did end up in a tree just like the first.
The third will have to be flown in my parents yard which is an acre square void of trees!
