How To Make Paper Airplanes

The Moth is a durable and easy to fold paper airplane that will deliver very consistent and precise flights. To make this paper airplane you will need only a single sheet of paper.
Range: Long
Difficulty: Easy
Fold 1 1. Fold a sheet of paper exactly in half long-ways, and re-open it so you have a crease separating the two halves.
Fold 2 2. On one end on of the paper, fold each corner in towards the center to the point where the inside edges are even with the centerline crease.
Fold 3 3. The bottom edge of the corners that you just folded down should create a straight line across the page. Fold down at this line.
Fold 4 4. Fold the corners down again similar to what you did in step 2, but this time only the corners should meet in the middle - leave one to two inches of straight paper at the top.
Fold 5 5. Where the corners of the last folds meet, you will see the point of fold 3 poking out of the bottom. Fold it up and over the two corners.
Fold 6 6. Turn the paper over onto the other side and fold it in half.
Fold 7 7. Fold the first wing so that the outside edge runs parallel to the body. Step 8 shows this more clearly.
Fold 8 8. Fold the second wing exactly as you did the first.

If it dives, slightly angle the rear of the wings up.

If it climbs and crashes, slightly angle the rear of the wings down.
