Sabertooth Paper Airplane Flying

This is a fantastic plane. Throw it as hard as possible vertically up into the air. Prefferably with a strong wind blowing towards you and just watch the plane soar and dive like a bird. It is almost always slight unsymmetrical and so this paper airplane will also fly in a huge arc. The lower the plane falls the faster it gets as well. It is brilliant if a little hard to make.
