Precise folds are key to producing a plane that's stable and flies the way its intended.

An especially nice place to launch paper planes from is a second- or third-floor balcony - if you don't mind going down and up the stairs to retrieve the plane after each flight.

The plane should be launched, point-first (with the narrow, pointed tip toward the front; the direction of travel will be approximately parallel with the original center fold of the plane which is now at its bottom), at a medium speed (it does not perform well when thrown very hard or fast) at a level or slightly upward trajectory.

Collins, who's known as "The Paper Airplane Guy," has written a new book offering instructions for folding not only his record-setting design, but stunt planes that do loops and flap their wings.

Watch the video above and follow along as you create five of his favorite designs.

Remove a square (about ½ inch) from the outer corners.

Make sure you do not cut your notch along the center fold.

Rotate the page clockwise 90° so that the angled portion is to the right and the square end is to the left. This fold lifts just the top panel created in step 11 and folds it "in half" so that the angled upper edge of the panel is parallel to and even with the original center fold (now at the bottom of the page).

Flip the page over, left to right so that the fold created in step 12 is down against the work surface and the angled edge is at the top and left and the square end (now possibly with the protuding tail of the wing created in step 12, depending upon the length-to-width proportions of the original sheet of paper) is to the right. This fold is a mirror image of the one just completed in step 12.
