Paper (Foam) Airplane Project
Anyone looking for an easy first foam airplane model scratch build? Take a gander at this option, which is only a foam glider copy of one of my favorite, old paper airplanes. Found some Youtube video of folks who made RC Flyers of paper airplane designs like this. Talk about cheap if Readi-Board from the Dollar Tree store is used! Nice flyers also if you strip off the paper skins on the Readi-Board. You can make them slow or fast by changing the motor, ESC, battery pack, and servo on an RC flyer version. I make a smaller glider first to find the COG for the design, which will be the same on a larger RC version if the measurements are enlarged carefully. If you change the ratio of the wing size, angle of dihedral, or wing loading, expect the COG position to change also.

More Paper Airplane Designs
A few designs you might find interesting. There are so many I will probably only be able to post a few good examples to get you started. You should see other video of the same topic listed to the right of the video presented if you watch the video on Youtube.
