Picture of How To Make The FireHornet Paper Airplane

Fast, long range and tiny, the FireHornet is a miniature "drone fighter" paper airplane designed to succeed the SkyStinger.

The FireHornet was developed to integrate the fuselage design of the Turbo AeroGnat with a delta wing for good performance and simplicity. The conventional design quickly proved to be capable in flight testing; with superior aerodynamics and ease of manufacture, the FireHornet showed itself generally better than the SkyStinger and was cleared for publication to replace it.

TAA USAF Designation: D423-1

It all depends on the launch height above ground, but glide ratio tends to be such that a launch at 4 feet can fly 30 to 40 feet in a level area.
