|Stearman 75 Biplane
Micro Paper Airplane
Through the 30s and 40s nearly 10,000 Stearman model 75 biplanes
designated as the PT13 biplane military trainer aircraft wear built and used as trainers in a wide
variety of military services.
After World War II the public acquired most of them and used them as aerobatic aircraft and crop
You can still buy a kit today for about thirty five thousand dollars. -ARF-$35,000
And a fully restored version will only run you about eighty thousand bucks-RTF-$80,000
But if that’s a little out of your price range you can try out this free paper version that any one can
You can even customize it by putting yourself, your friends,
or even the red baron snoopy in the canopy if you want.
This project all started Last night when YouTube user MegaMotionStudios ask if I’d ever made a
paper biplane that could actually fly.
I’ve made more then 20 scale paper airplanes that all fly, and are all free on our web sites
But I’ve never made a paper biplane.
So now it’s been just over 24 hours since the initial request and I’ve designed and built this one,
and it actually flies.
I sketched out my first version, cut it out and glued it together and it was able to glide across the
room and land on its little gear.
So I made some blue prints that anyone can print out and make In no time.
There are 2 versions, a full page large version with a 5 or 6 inch wing span
and a version with 3 medium and 4 small ones on a single page.
I tried to give it a good paint job and I tried to make it to scale for all you aircraft fans out their. So
have fun with it, this ones for you guys.
It’s easy to put together.
First print it out on normal printer paper.
Letter size or A4 works best.
Then cut out the pieces and glue them together with normal Elmer’s glue.
You can also tape them together if you’re making a larger or thicker version.
The large black squares are nose weight, they act like the engine and should be folded up
underneath the red engine cowling. Changing the amount of nose weight can help it fly better so
experiment with it, have fun.
