Here it is! For me, this is the first book on my paperplans that I own, or read for that matter. I just made two types that my brothers showed me before reading it. All the other books I read on paper planes are judged to be compared to them.
The story behind the competition is interesting and fun, but it may be difficult to read once. There are many beautiful photos of contestants who have not got the designs in the book, and a beautiful picture on a rocket match of a happy paper match.
There is no explanation of the flight mechanics.
It has 20 designs, covering many major airplane styles, giving new readers a lot of inspiration for future designs.
I give this book a 9 out of 10, almost perfect saving for the absence of a chapter teaching new users on flight essentials.
I wholeheartedly endorse this book, it is still reliable, with relevant content and with a great assortment of airplanes!
Total score: 9/10 airplanes
