The greatest purchase I ever made as a kid was the time I talked my dad into giving me $5 for the school book fair and I ended up spending it all on a book that showed how to make sweet paper airplanes. It even included some paper. Everyone has folded up a paper airplane at some point and tried to fly it. DIY maker of things The Q has a new how-to video that I definitely need to try for myself.
This video shows you how to roll your own massive 122-inch paper airplane that can actually fly. It’s not really made from paper though, instead he used polystyrene. Those are thin sheets of foam that are typically used in building projects for insulation. He attached the pieces together with construction adhesive and tape.
The giant plane does actually take flight, and I now have a serious urge to build one and then launch it off one of the mountains here in Colorado. Check out the video and get working on yours this weekend.
