Picture of How To Make The Omniwing Swift Paper Airplane

Very fast, long range and stealthy, the Omniwing Swift is a flying wing paper airplane derived from the larger Omniwing Zeta.

The concept of the Omniwing Swift preceded the Omniwing Zeta, despite the latter's ultimately earlier publication. The Swift was originally intended to serve as a half-scale testbed for the Zeta's design, exploring the viability of whether or not the design would work. Ultimately, the Swift was not built before the Zeta was proceeded with because I elected to proceed with full scale work on the Zeta immediately.

The Omniwing Swift as it is presented here came into being in late 2016, as a result of my decision to produce a standardized aircraft which could complement the original Omniwing by menamiketrx. The design draws substantially upon the Zeta, but there are some unique parts that differentiate the two.

Flight testing of the Omniwing Swift showed it to be an excellent performer, and combined with its very unique shape, it was quickly deemed worthy of a published tutorial.

What steps are you having difficulties with?

Wow! This flies fast, but it took me forever to make :)

I'm glad to hear you made and liked it! :)

The advanced nature of the Omniwing Swift means it does take a little while to make the aircraft but, in the end, it's worth it.

This is FUN! I can hear Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" (Ritt der Walküren) in the background as I am folding the paper.
