Paper airplanes are fun to make, but have you ever tried to recreate the world record paper airplane for flying the farthest, 226’ 10”? You can follow the instructions by John Collins to fold this amazing paper airplane. This is a mix of origami and aeronautics. Follow the instructions in my video to fold the plane. You can also watch the record breaking flight here.
- What makes these two designs make these planes fly so differently?
- If you used different types of paper, construction paper, origami paper, card stock, etc., would this change how either of these planes fly?
- Does changing the weight of the paper airplane affect how it flies? What would happen if you added weight towards the back?
