Picture of How To Make The Turbo AeroDelta Paper Airplane

Fast, long range and stealthy, the Turbo AeroDelta is a small flying wing paper airplane meant to complement similar types like the Turbo Omniwing and UltraDelta. Like its namesake, the AeroDelta, the Turbo AeroDelta does not require any cutting and is fairly simple to construct.

The conceptual development of the Turbo AeroDelta was initiated to provide a newer and simpler "fast flying wing" aircraft than existing types offered. This is in part because of the recent lack of such designs and because such a plane would likely be useful as a trainer for a larger flying wing currently in development tentatively called the Zeta. The Turbo AeroDelta's layout was inspired by basic folds the Osprey Precise paper airplane by Hangar 13, although their similarities taper off beyond the initial folds and general configuration. Flight testing showed the Turbo AeroDelta to be a smart and handy performer, so it was soon approved for publication.

would this work the same with A4 instead of the American letterpress?

To be completely honest, I am not sure. I never tested the aircraft with A4 paper because I do not use that paper type myself.

I would hope that it works for you, but I cannot be sure that it will given that the aircraft was never designed for A4 and that paper airplanes can be finicky to changes like this. Please let me know how it fares if you make it with A4.
