How to make a high performance Origami Glider: The OmniWing


The OmniWing is high performance Origami Glider designeb by Mike Kelsey. Fast, long range and simple, the Omniwing is a stealthier, its balanced design allows it to fly quickly whilst also retaining the ability to fly fairly slow if desired as well; this makes it an excellent trainer. In addition, the design is simple enough to allow further development easily.
It can be made from a single sheet of standard typing paper, and a little transparent tape. With practice, folding of the OmniWing can be made in just a few minutes and and unlike other paper airplanes, will fly right from the design table, with very little tuning required. It is a distance champion, having won two consecutive paper airplane contests in the early 1970’s.
There are several variants of the Omniwing: Super Omniwing, OmniScimitar, Turbo Omniwing, Turbo OmniScimitar, Proto-Omniwing and Manta flying wings.
Materials Required: 1 Piece of 8.5 by 11 inch paper, Tape, Scissors, Pencil and Ruler
