How to fold a record-breaking paper plane: Maker reveals aerodynamic secrets

That is the current world record, held by John Collins and Joe Ayoob using a design the pair call 'Suzanne.' To put this into perspective, this distance is further than eight double decker buses lined up in a row - and now Mr Collins has created a video to show how Suzanne is made. In addition to revealing insider tips and tricks, Mr Collins is offering $1,000 (£665) to anyone who can build a paper plane using these instructions and beat his record.

Scroll down for video and instructions John Collins and Joe Ayoob hold the record for the farthest flight by a paper aircraft. The video has been released to coincide with Mr Collins' Kickstarter campaign. Mr Collins wants to launch a national paper plane contest in the US and is seeking funding for the contest's website. The campaign launched yesterday and has raised a little over $961 (£639) of its $20,000 (£13,300) target. Paper Airplane Launcher. My boys love anything that can launch or fling items, and this homemade paper airplane launcher really fits the bill!

Paper Airplane Launcher

It’s easy to build and will take ordinary paper airplanes to a whole new level. Very fun for a stuck-indoors sort of day, and building and testing the planes involves all kinds of science, so it would make a great scouting or school activity as well. Our paper airplane launcher is a simple design. Aidan drove two nails into the end of a scrap board, added a long rubber band (from the office supply aisle at Walmart), and that was it! We tried shooting planes by just holding the tail of the plane against the rubber band, but the planes kept getting bent and they really didn’t shoot that far. To modify your plane, you will need a paper clip (bent as shown), a hole punch, and tape. Tape the paper clip to the nose of the plane as shown. Yconic - Scholarships and Student Community.
