The planes in this book are amoung the most challenging I have seen in a published book. I'll admit that I haven't completed them all yet, but that's because my younger brother took the book. A number of the planes look very similar to their real-life counterparts and still fly well if made correctly.The techniques shown in the book may be hard to initially figure out, but I have applied them very well to my own plane designs. For the low price of the book, it is definitely worth buying to expand your knowledge of paper airplane design.Oh, yea... Previous origami experience is highly recommended. These are all made from square sheets.

This book displays interesting and elegant origami not found in other works. It is unique in that these origami pieces are also functional.


The origami in this book was very difficult to complete, but once completed, they were worth the effort and struggle.
