Origami paper can be used, although larger heavier paper (e.g. white printer paper) may work better.
Fold down the middle, then unfold, to create a crease:
Now fold each corner towards the crease line as shown.
Fold along the crease line to form the body of the airplane. Then fold the wings down, one at a time:
And finally, unfold the wings to produce your paper airplane!
All paper airplanes can be adjusted to fly better. One of the simplest things to do is add an adjustable weight, in the form of a paper clip (see below).
If the plane climbs sharply then slows and drops (and repeats), move the paper clip forward. If the plane dives sharply to the ground, move the paper clip backwards.
