Final Paper Airplane Design Royal Wing

This design has wide wings and a short body which makes it unsuitable for fast speeds. Throw it very gently. If the airplane tends to flip over, you may have made it too short. Unfold it and repeat step 7 above with less of the tip folded back. This will make the body longer and a bit more stable. Use the ailerons to steer the paper airplane and make sure the wings have a dihedral angle.
