Drone Paper Airplane


This paper airplane resembles the Turkish Bayraktar TB2 Drone that has an inverted-V tail fin. This paper airplane is simple to fold and glides very well.  It requires few cuttings after few steps of folding. Template sheet may be downloaded. The folding instruction is also available from the Youtube.
