Turn over and along the bottom fold line do exactly the same bend.

On one side of this part you need to make a small notch with scissors. We are going to put a rubber band through it.  We take the rubber band and put it through the notch, and then we wrap it like in the video and load it.

Supply:

  • Paper

Tools:

  • Stationery gum

Materials: Scissors

The airplane starter is ready, let’s check it out. In the top cut of the starter we put the body of the airplane. And pull these two wings, thereby releasing the rubber band. All right, let’s go to the test, let’s fire it up. Cool, it all works, you can think of how to launch a few of these. Such a plane flies straight and far. Too bad there was a strong wind outside and I could not show it to you. But indoors it flies great. Let’s check it on the balloon. That’s the kind of cool airplane we made out of paper.
