A group of school children make a paper airplane called the tumblewing walkalong glider. Although the tumblewing flies more like a falling piece of confetti, it can be sustained and controlled in flight by a suitably positioned paddle. For the demonstration flight at the end of this video, a sheet of transparent 3mm thick lexan is used.
