Final Paper Airplane Design Eagle Eye

To get this to fly you will need to add significant weight to the front of the airplane. A large paperclip works well. Then widen the body for the full eagle effect and carefully bend the wing feathers up or down to get it to fly level. This is not the best performing paper airplane, but it looks cool.
