Redesign of the Paper Plane


Warning: This is not an LBTC redesign.

One would think how can one redesign something as simple as a paper plane. Well isn’t that the beauty of design? It can make something complex simple and something simple better than ever. The new and improved design includes inbuilt cuts, and an option to increase the curve of the plane to improve flight and magnets! Yes. Magnets!

The Product



These are the instructions for assembling and flying your paper plane.



This is how the plane looks in the package and when it is completely assembled.

If you look closely, you would notice that the nose of the place contains the magnets which I assume helps with the circular boomerang-like-path that the plane takes. I wish I had a video of the plane making the complete circle but mine lost shape before I could get one and my dad and nephew had all the other three. Will update the same on my Instagram when I get my hands on another set sometime soon.


  1. Much larger possibility of the plane actually flying.
  2. More durable than your normal handmade paper alternatives.
  3. Pocket-friendly. We bought the set of 4 for 100 rupees which is a small amount to pay for an evening of fun with your family.


  1. Though the boomerang path is not impossible to master, it is a little hard to get the hang of which in turn leads to crashes which leads us to point #2.
  2. The product, in the end, is made of paper, and it will lose shape after a couple of crashes and it WILL come as a hindrance when you try to learn the boomerang path secret.

Well, what a refreshing redesign of the age-old paper plane. We LOVE the innovative thinking and the efforts. Have you read LBTC’s redesigns of various everyday stuff. Check them all out here.
