    One of these days somebody will do something like that on camera and instead of reaking out and asking if the camera that was filming "DID YOU GET THAT?!," he`ll nonchalantly look at the camera and say, "I told you so."

    Someone doesnt know what the word telekinetic means.

    I thought mods were meant to proof read these submissions.

    @tedgp It was a mod that choose that title I assume they decided on that due to the fact that is what the youtube video is called.

    "He`s an aeronautical genius!"

    No, making the traditional pointy plane basically creates a dart, which creates little to no lift. Making the one he makes creates a large border at the leaning edge, with thinner surface behind it, thus creating what is called an "aerofoil" which is the principle behind what makes wings fly.

    His plane didn`t have any pushing force to maintain the little litf created, however, it did reduce the falling speed to something much less than the traditional one.

    The Guiness World Record for a paper airplane was created with an even simpler model. Take a piece of paper, put it sideways, fold one edge 3 times over itself about the width of your thumb, fold a V in the middle, and voila, simplest and most efficient model (So i`ve read, my success with that model was minimal)

    "Wait we have to name our planes......... Ok, I`m just going to call mine paper airplane"

    The guy actually thought it would be a good idea to name the planes, and not bother to come up with ANYTHING despite being the last one to name his plane? Why bother if you`re not gonna bother?

    we call it an Airfoil here. but that doesnt matter. language differences. but the Kf airfoil (short for Kline Fogleman airfoil) i think still holds the record for longest thrown distance of a paper airplane. maybe that has changed. but the kf airfoil is one of the most simple to make and it create massive amounts of lift. i use them on all my Rc airplanes i make.
