DailyDirt: Paper Airplane Tricks

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Paper airplanes have advanced quite a bit -- with added motors and smartphone controls or fancy new folding techniques that can be found all over the internet. Paper airplanes can become an incredibly complex hobby if you really have the motivation to take them to the next level. If you have the free time, try out some of these paper airplane projects. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    That's nothing, I once threw a paper airplane 160 miles from my Lotus. I then drove to the landing site in only 30 minutes. While waiting for the paper airplane to land, I benched 500 lbs a few times for fun. It would have flown forever, but I got into my Ferrari, chased down the paper airplane, and downloaded the laws of physics from the Ethernet cord that was dangling from it while it was still in flight allowing all paper airplanes to land safely.

    But I don't like to show off, it's just another day in the life of a child prodigy with a 197 IQ. Don't forget to watch my show!
