13. The Deltry aircraft in flight - remember that it's a very slow flyer, much slower (and more graceful) than most paper airplanes. Don't throw it, just release it while your hand is moving forward slowly. One good grip is shown below in diagram 15.

15. This isn't the only way to grip the Deltry paper airplane in order to launch it, but it's the easiest way. Gently now! This plane soars at a leisurely pace, it doesn't speed anywhere.
