Default well

you could compare the way the planes fly like which ones fly straight.
In the begining God made heaven and the earth.And the earth was without form,and void;and the darkness was upon the face of the deep.And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.And God said,"let there be light":and there was light .And God saw the light was good :and God divided the light from darkness.And God called the light day and the darkness night.And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Genesis chapter 1 verses 1-5

Default i got one

YOu could find all of these different types of paper airplanes on the internet. (google recomended) make a starting point and throw the aiplanes and measure. the only problem is that you have to make sure that they're thrown the exact same way every time.
you could build a balsa wood airplane. you could buy a little kit at a store. every time you could like adjust the angle or something. or move a piece forward or backwards or something like that.
You could buy a foam plane and a bbalsa and make a basic paper one and compare them to each other. like the distance they fly, how they sterr, and stuff like that. Hope it helps!
Ya, i got nothing. I live the bored
