A basic design with decent distance and speed.

This is one of the most iconic paper airplane designs, and also one of the easiest to fold. It flies very well, in a nice straight line. A forgiving airplane design that works well even with uneven or asymmetrical folds. The perfect starter airplane for anyone just learning.
