Good Paper Airplane – The Blackbird


The Blackbird plane is a simple and good to fold paper airplane. It uses basic folding techniques employed throughout the rest of this origami-blog. To be successful, follow the steps shown on the video carefully and precisely. The most important element is to pull up the nose of the plane, and carefully press and align the back, as shown in the video and images. Also, make sure both sides are folded evenly on every fold throughout the plane assembly.

Flying tips for paper airplanes
l) Fold paper evenly. A firm sturdy shape flies best.
2) Fold the tail fin straight up.
3) Use pressure when folding to ensure crisp points.
4) Throw straight.
5) If plane loops, add weight (e.g., a paperclip) to the nose.
6) To climb, trim the elevators up. To dive, trim the elevators down.
7) For stunts, trim one aileron down and the other up. This will make the plane spin and
roll as it flies.
8) Trim rudders to the right for right turns and to the left for left turns.
