Paper Airplane Design

John Collins talks your head off about the science behind his hundreds of paper airplane designs

This guy is SO excited about paper airplanes. Seriously, I wish I liked anything as much as this guy likes paper airplanes. Fervor aside though, there’s some serious science, engineering, and history knowledge being dropped in this video (it’s all about those dihedral angles). Highlight 1: Those boomerang planes. Highlight 2: how casually he just tosses these things around, although I suppose they are really just sheets of letter sized paper, aren’t they?
