These Paper Airplanes Will Blow Your Mind

They fly in circles, flip, twirl, and more

Not content with distance, he also folds craft that soar in circles, flip in midair to return to his hand, and stay aloft in the breeze from a sheet of unfolded paper. Popular Science caught up with Collins at the 2015 Bay Area Maker Faire. Watch his paper planes strut their stuff in this video, created by our partner Portico.
