Top Customer Reviews
1. Exciting, colorful paper airplanes (if you can manage to make them).
2. Directions are clear and easy enough for my 6 year old to follow.
1. Some of the perforated edges cut into the design destroying the plane before you even try to remove the paper from the book.
2. It's nearly impossible to remove the pages from the book without ripping (and thus destroying) the paper airplane before you even start. Part of this is due to Con #1 (stated above) and part of it is due to the poor function of the perforated edges.
3. In some of the designs, the lines on the front of the design do not match the lines on the back of the design. So, there is some guesswork required in figuring out where to fold and cut.
1. There are 20 different designs for you to make with a few copies of each design. This comes in handy when you rip a tiny piece of the page while carefully trying to remove it from the book. (See Con #2).
2. The Cons are not deal breakers. I still recommend this book. Just be prepared to be very frustrated.
Really don't recommend this book.
Get the Klutz Book of Paper Airplanes instead - you'll be much happier. That book comes with fun paper that folds like normal printer paper and once it is gone you can still make planes using ordinary 8.5x11 paper because the instructions are excellent.
I bought this in conjunction with the PowerUp 3.0 smartphone Controlled Paper airplane. I'm not sure yet if the plane templates will work together but I'll give it a shot in a couple of weeks when I give it to him. I haven't built any planes yet, but it really doesn't look complicated. They have step-by-step fold instructions and all the folds are labeled by numbers. I also like that the paper included is thicker than your traditional copy paper and it's printed with cool designs on both sides.
