- In stock online
Origami author Andrew Dewar rediscovered his childhood love of paper airplanes in Japan working with Yasuaki Ninomiya (creator of the famous White Wings planes). His designs are incredibly easy to assemble and his book not only explains how to make paper planes, but how to tune them for better performance. For the daring paper airplane maker, he also gives tips on designing your own airplane models.
The helpful instruction book inside the kit provides clear, step-by-step instructions for each plane. All the planes are printed in full color on high-quality cardstock and precut, so you just push out the pieces, fold them and staple them. The rubber band catapult launcher that is included makes the planes soar and swoop to great heights--which draws a crowd and keeps both kids and adults entertained for hours.

"[...] All the planes are designed to be launched using a rubber band launcher. You give the plane a light test throw which won't send it more than 10 feet to see if you need to adjust anything- tips in the book tell you how to adjust for drag and various other issues. After you have it ready, take it somewhere you have room and let it fly with the launcher!" --Don't Eat The Paste blog

I, as an adult female, don't usually get that excited about paper airplanes, but I was certainly delighted to see the cool, unique designs of the paper airplanes when I first opened this kit. [...] an excellent kit to build together by a parent-child team. Building and flying them together could lead to a great bonding experience." --Yuki's Origami Blog
"The book comes in a glossy box that includes the stack of pre-punched planes and a catapult launcher. Written by a man who has a true passion for paper airplanes, the book has great tips on construction, troubleshooting and flying, plus a lot of smart people stuff about camber and dihedral and lift. There's a built-in science lesson in there for the kiddos. [...] The included catapult launcher is really fun. (Do not launch inside the house!) The planes can go quite a ways. I tried several times to get action shots, but the launches were always too fast to catch with my camera." --mmmCrafts blog
