    Welcome to the forums,

    Why are you interested, is this a school project of yours? What factors do you think you should consider? Have you researched anything already?

    it is for a personal knowlege, my friends and i have fun making paper airplane and i challenged one of the to a contest to make better airplane but it made me ask what makes paper airplanes work so well.
    alot of the stuff i found is too complicated for me to understand.
    i already know how thrust and wings of real air plane work, but i find information on paper airplanes dificult to find, besides on how to fold them.
