Do you think paper airplanes are just for kids? Think again. A paper airplane enthusiast is now offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who can fly his record-setting design further than him.
This isn't your run-of-the-mill paper airplane design. It was create by John Collins and Joe Ayoob, who hold the Guinness World Record for the longest flight by a paper aircraft. The team managed to fly a paper airplane 226 feet 10 inches in 2012. Now, Collins has made his "Suzanne" design open to everyone and will award $1,000 if someone can beat his record using the design.
The paper airplane aficionado is also trying to popularize the hobby by putting together a national paper airplane competition. He set up a Kickstarter page to fund the event that has raised over $1,600 toward its $20,000 goal.
