Make a Paper Helicopter
You will need:
- 1 piece of paper that is 25 cm long and 5 cm wide
- 1 paper clip
- A ruler
To make the helicopter, use a ruler to draw the dashed lines and solid lines onto your
piece of paper as shown in the pattern. The dashed lines are fold lines, and the solid
lines are cutting lines.
First, cut along the solid lines on your piece of paper. Then, complete the following
- Fold A and B away from you.
- Fold C toward E, on the dashed line.
- Fold D so it overlaps C.
- Fold E in toward the center of your paper.
Place the paper clip over the fold at E. Now are ready to make a test flight. Hold your
paper helicopter so that E is toward the ground. Start by holding the helicopter above
your head and letting it drop. Then try it from higher places. Make some test flights with
the paper clip off. Does this have any effect.
