Forget paper airplanes that crash and burn seconds after you throw them! Andrew Dewar's tried and true High-Performance Paper Airplanes will surpass those flimsy classroom creations, sending your plane higher than you ever dreamed possible. The secret is in Andrew's tested designs, special paper and the rubber-band catapult you'll find in this kit. Designed to soar gracefully from one end of your local park or football field to the other, the airplane models in this box range from simple ones that can be assembled in under a minute to detailed scale replicas that look and fly like the real thing. Using the rubber-band catapult and with a bit of practice, you'll be able to launch planes that remain aloft for 30 to 60 seconds--and more! The full-color booklet that is included provides clear step-by-step instructions for each model. The planes themselves are made of quality cardstock printed in full-color on both sides and precut so you just need to push them out and assemble them using a bit of glue. The booklet not only explains how to assemble each plane, but how to fine-tune it to coax the best performance. Helpful tips for hosting competitions with your friends, and suggestions for designing your own airplane models are also included. Fun to build and amazing to fly, these beautiful models are guaranteed to turn heads and draw a crowd of spectators every time you fly them! Projects include: Hornet Tiger Eclipse Sidewinder Firefly Corsair
