Learn how to fold John Collin’s world record paper airplane quickly and concisely – This video has no distractions, just the instructions.

For the full 35 minute tutorial by John Collins, check out this video:

Instructions:
Using a standard 8 and a half by 11 piece of paper, cut 19 millimeters off the long edge. Fold the top right corner down against its opposite side, then open it up and repeat the fold with the top left corner. Open that fold, and now, using the folds as guide marks, fold the top half of each side edge down and across so it is just a millimeter or 2 above the guide mark. This will prevent the layers from bunching up during later folds. Fold the top down so that the creases on the top line up with the creases on the bottom. Fold the sides down with the lined up creases.

Fold the plane in half away from you, lining up the nose and tail corners so they match perfectly. Crease the bottom of the plane. Then sharpen all the creases. 3 to 5 millimeters up from the nose fold the top wing down, keeping the underlying paper tucked nicely against the body, until the raw edge of the wing lines up with the back bottom corner of the plane. Flip the plane over and repeat with the other wing, matching the height of the fold near at the nose, and then lining up the wings. Sharpen the creases.

Fold up the wings midway and release so that you get a nice sweep up on the wing tips. Your plane is complete. Give it some test flights and adjust the wing tips and sides to dial in the perfect flight.

  1. A standard WHAT page!? How different is it from an A4?

  2. I always go fine and then get stuck on a step and can't do it, I freaking hate youtube tutorials, I can't get the wing fold, why is there always one step I GET STUCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. i think i just accidentally improved the distance, stability, and direction of that plane by double folding the wing to expand its wingspan.it flew really straight, really far, and really steady.

  4. This plays like Monopoly, except for these changes. For a refresher, click the link here 👆
