One of my favorite pastimes as a child was building paper airplanes. I remember ordering a book back when i was six or seven that was jam packed with all sorts of cool paper-airplane designs and blueprints. I seem to recall that as about the time that I began to take an interest in airplanes in a big way. I even built one of those balsa wood fly-by-wire airplane kits. It wound up looking more like a poodle dipped in neon blue and never got off the ground- but whatever.
Well it’s summer time, and summer is a great time to picnic at parks and beaches, and to have some paper airplane dogfights.
Here is a little viper project you can do by yourself at home. All you need is a printer, and some decent quality paper.
