The Space Cruiser is a glider that will mesmerize any onlooker with its slow, graceful cruising. Then ZAP! It abducts them with a glowing beam. Just kidding, the Space Cruiser does not abduct people, it comes in peace.

How to Make a Space Cruiser Paper Airplane?

Step 1 Step 1: Start with a regular piece of rectangle paper that's 8.5 x 11.0 inches (215.9 x 279.4 mm).
Step 2Step 2-2 Step 2: Fold the top left corner down to the right edge as shown. Make the top right corner as pointy as possible.
Step 3 Step 3: Unfold.
Step 4Step 4-2 Step 4: Fold the top right corner to the left edge as shown.
Step 5 Step 5: Unfold. You should now have two diagonal creases that form an "X"
Step 6 Step 6: Turn the paper over.
Step 7Step 7-2 Step 7: Fold the top down by lining up both top two corners to the bottom of both diagonal creases. In other words, fold down at the "X" of the diagonal creases.
Step 8 Step 8: Unfold.
Step 9 Step 9: Turn the paper over.
Step 10Step 10-2 Step 10: Put your finger at the center of the "X" crease and push in to pop the "X" in.
Step 11Step 11-2 Step 11: The creases should collapse in, so help it out and flatten it to get the triangle.

Step 18Step 18-2 Step 18: Tuck the right flap in its pocket as well.
Step 19Step 19-2 Step 19: Fold the left and right edges of the plane to the center.
Step 20Step 20-2 Step 20: Take both edges at the center and fold them out to the outer edges.
Step 21Step 21-2 Step 21: Unflatten the wings so they look like this. You're all done! Now let's learn how to fly this.
Step 22Step 22-2 Step 22: With your hand, clamp down at the back half of the plane like this. Instead of throwing it, just push it forward as if it's already in midflight and let go.
