Coca-Cola Paper F-15

Build an easy paper jet model with your hands, a pair of


scissors, two rulers and some glue!
Check your handiwork skills !
Challenge a child to build it !
Assemble one as a gift for someone !
Once built, fly it !

Print page 8 on sheet 1, page 9 and opposite 9 on each side of sheet 2 and
page 10 on sheet 3. Cut out the parts, fold along the lines shaping the pieces
and stick with glue. The plane is balanced and should fly with minor
aerodynamic adjustments.
The whole process from assembly to flying is detailed in this document.

Coca-Cola was created in 1886, and it has became the most recognized
brand worldwide. From the standpoint of engineering, Coca-Cola developed
the bottling, glass, cardboard, sheet metal, water purification, refrigerators
and transportation industries. In many parts of the world it had to implement
these industries from scratch, then helping local economies.

Coca-Cola, thanks for all those extra working hours late at night.

! Note about Glue

Suitable glue should have these qualities:


-Accurate application. So that you can easily apply a bead of glue over a narrow
paper tab.
-Transparent. The airplane will look better if too much glue is applied and it
overflows tabs' boundaries.
-It should dry fast enough. It should be strong enough to stick two pieces
together after holding for two minutes.
-It should dry slow enough. The glue must allow enough time to manoeuvre the
pieces before setting.
-And most importantly: The glue must not deform or wrinkle the paper.
Before starting to
assemble the airplane,
check your glue:
Spread some glue on
a sheet of paper and
wait a few minutes. If
the paper gets
wrinkled or wavy,
then, that glue is not
suitable for paper; the
aircraft would be
deformed and look
ugly.
A suitable glue is
transparent liquid
contact glue usually
used for repairing
shoes. They can be


found at the Glues

X
section in big
shopping centres or
hardware stores.

Print pages 8, 9 and 10 on normal


A4 paper or regular letter paper.
Using a paper with a basis weight of
20lb // 80gr/m2 will simplify the
balancing process. Print full scale
(100%) to avoid the distortion of
parts and using option Auto-rotate
and center pages. Do not fit to
page or shrink to page.
Cut parts over the external lines.

Fold over the lines with the help of rulers to


obtain the shape of each part.

Note that you can fold the paper on


the lines with the help of the rulers,
(to the opposite side) and then, with
your fingers, on the same line, to
the correct side to obtain the shape
of the final piece.

Stick parts by applying glue to the overlapping surfaces.

Apply a small amount of glue. Otherwise, the


airplane will look ugly and it will weigh too much.

Note about printing Parts


Use either letter or DIN A4 formats, preferably with a basis weight of 20lb //
80gr/m2 . There are four pages to be printed on three sheets of paper. Page
opposite 8 must be printed on the reverse side of page 8, in order that the
plane is correctly decorated. Check option Auto-rotate and center pages but
do not check fit to page or shrink to page. Print at 100% scale. You
neednt to print the rest of the document. View it on the screen and zoom in
when needed.

Page 8 Sheet 1

Page 9 Sheet 2 Page opposite 9 Page 10 Sheet 3

If you want to build a static, non-flying model, you can print on high quality
paper in high resolution. However if you want a flying model it is better to use
normal paper.
A weight of 20lb//80gr paper is perfect to fold and fly. The thicker the paper, the
more difficult it is to fold and the heavier is the plane for flying.

(LE flaps)
Although the F-15 doesnt have
leading edge flaps, we can use them
to improve some flights.

1 Aerodynamic cleanness

If the surfaces are bent, force the paper with your fingers trying to straighten them.
The airplane may have defects, but they must be symmetrical.
25
www.PaperAircrafts.com

2 Aircraft balanced

Rest the airplane on two fingers so that the lower wing circles
are positioned directly above them. If it stays level and does
not fallit is balanced.

Ready to fly

If it falls forward, the nose is too


heavy. Try to remove piece 17 or
put a load on the tail.

If it falls backward, it needs more


weight in the nose. Did you paste
parts 14, 15, 16 and 17 ? Add
some pieces of paper if needed

3 Throwing It is easier to throw the


airplane while holding it in
the line of sight and
projecting it along its
longitudinal axis.

4 Correcting the flight path: Pitch

If the aircraft pitches down towards the ground,


bend the elevator gently upwards. Repeat the
flight. If it still goes down, bend the elevator
upwards a little more until the aircraft glides
straight.

If the gliding path oscillates as shown


above the elevator may be deflected
too far upwards. Reduce the amount
of upward deflection.

In this case the nose still needs a little


more weight. Add some pieces of paper
to the nose.

28

+
If you manage to stabilize the glide path but the flight path is too far
downwards the nose may be too heavy. Try to remove part of piece 17 or
add weight to the tail and reduce the elevators upward deflection.

Correcting the flight path: direction

In order to correct the turn, gently adjust the angle of the ailerons asymmetrically
as shown in the images. The deflections in the pictures are exaggerated; you will
obtain the opposite effect.

In case of slight corrections in direction, you can use the rudders.


Adjust them very gently.

Slipped flight has poor a glide ratio. The airplane somehow flies
sideways and banks a little. The tails and wings might not be
correctly adjusted.
