    I think different folds still hold true to the spirit of the record. The only thing I think it should specify is that the airplane needs to be only paper -- no other stationery items like tape or paper clips allowed. What are everyone else's thoughts here?

    by the way, the glider design on the wikipedia article is similar to the method I would have used in this particular record...

    Wow I got Simon to post a non-category-related comment! :) I would fold a glider plane design which is still a legit fold and flies in my opinion better than the method used. If this particular fold is part of the criteria maybe it should be "Most X Paper Airplaines" X being the name of the fold (which I'm unsure?). And looking at the wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_plane the "traditional" design pictured is a DODGY fold!! It's barely half of what's demonstrated in this record and in my opinion barely considered a paper plane... maybe some better guidelines/criteria need considering as to what "traditional is" or maybe a selection of 2-3 designs that are suitable.

    What techniques do you speak of, Peter?!!?

    I'm sure I heard Rob in the background?? I know the criteria states "traditional paper airplanes" but surely other fold designs could be used? I know of some legit ones that fly/glide that would be faster to fold, this would almost be part of the technique to get more folded in time.

    I expect we'll get a sheaf of entries.

    I think someone will win by a paper thin margin.

    It could be a high-flying success, yes. :)
