In remembrance of the last paper planes thread, which just so happened to be one of the oldest boards on 4chan that passed away quite recently, this thread will serve as its successor. Hopefully this thread won't be prematurely bumped into oblivion like the last one did.Anyways, this thread could serve as a sort of "Paper Planes General". Feel free to post your designs, .pdf files, and folding instructions. Anything goes as long as it flies or at least looks like its supposed to.
Here's a little something to get things started. This is one of my favorite origami airplanes books out there: Origami Aircraft, by Jayson Merrill.These designs are pretty kick-ass, in my opinion, given how functional they are (namely, functional landing gear, moving canopies on certain models, and overall flightworthiness). Personally, my favorite design in this book is the Firebat, though I strongly recommend trying them all out.PROTIP: Use the thinnest paper you can find! I recommend tracing paper since it is the most lightweight and can give your models superior flight characteristics. Anything thicker will result in dense, stiff, and difficult-to-fold models. This especially applies on some of the more complex ones.
A bunch of neat designs
>>561933Ah, the Nakamura Lock. Simple if nothing else
Alright fellas, here's an archive of all paper models by Zio Prudenzio, lest they go offline like the rest of his website.I'm missing the Reggiane Re.2005, does anyone have it?And what about Raktapaksha-Trotskiy models? I asked in the old thread, but forgot to check again for replies on that and now I can't find it on any archives.https://mega.nz/#F!iXoEnAZa
>>562174That link is password protected, sorry about that. Here's a fixed version.https://mega.nz/#F!iXoEnAZa!1ODancibnddg6igQXddWUA
>>561868does anyone have a pdf of the plane from porco rosso, the Savoia S.21? I would really like to make it.
Canons free white wings, very good flying characteristics. Should be made of heavy paper.
>>561868I am just leaving this homepage here. I build already nearly all of these jets and they even can fly.http://ojimak.web.fc2.com/hanger.htmlIf it asks for a password, its "ojimak"
>>561868Origami jt that flies pretty wellhttps://imgur.com/gallery/N8JIF
>>564517Similar model with some clarifiation on the "jet fold"
>>561868plenty of paper plane stuff out there.
>>561869here's my attempt at the diamondback using paper that is way too small.
>>563220I would also really like to make this.
>>563709Some links are missing
>>561869the aurora one looks great but i am really confused with which crease indicates the place where i should outisde reverse fold and the picture is really low resolutioncould anyone show me how to 7th step please
>>563709Ok, anon. Based on this >>570275Is there an archive or something?I really wanted to do F-2A and MIG28
>>566856That's a big plane.
>>563709So I just did the first one. With scissors and glue stick. I am pretty sure I was not supposed to do it that way. It still flies, but it doesn't look that good and I have a feeling that it will eventually break. I also made a big mess of paper. So any suggestions on what I should use?
>>561868Anyone got WW1 flyable planes?
>>561868How old are we talking here?
>>57069817 November 2015
>>570441X-acto knife and pva.
>>570869Thank youAlso, I'm this anon>>570275>>570321If you go to the top of the page there is a link to an updated version of the site. u welcome
>>561933Is this loss?
Do helicopters count?
>>571690Not OP but it would be cool if they cool fly.
>>571690Got any helicopters?
>>571690Those are cute!
>>561868Paying respect to Zio Prudenzio
>>563709Hm, what is the best paper to use for these?
>>571690Alright, crazy idea here. If you could give it gyro-copter mechanics you could probably get it to fly forward a decent amount just like a paper airplane. For those who don't know, gyrocopters were these crazy half-plane half-helicopters that had a free spinning, unpowered rotor that used the natural air currents to spin and act as a sort of lifting force, while a propeller on the front pulled the plane froward.
