FUN PAPER AIRPLANES
This plane produces tremendous lift at low speed, giving it a very low glide slope.
It is an excellent indoor flier and will coast across the room on slow, smooth glides.
The helicopter is a classic design that spins rapidly as it descends. It works
great when dropped from a high place. Try different amounts of weight on the
bottom tab. Notice that the helicopter spins in different directions depending on
which direction the rotors are folded.
“Here be dragons” means dangerous or unexplored territories, in imitation of a medieval practice of putting illustrations of dragons, sea monsters and other mythological creatures on uncharted areas of maps. (wiki)
