Consequently, how far can a paper plane go?

The fold piece of paper covered a distance of 226 feet, 10 inches, or three-fourths of the length of a football field. The paper airplane flight beat the previous world record of 207 feet, 4 inches, set by Stephen Kreiger in 2003.

Subsequently, question is, does the size of a paper airplane affect the distance? "Yes, wingspan will affect flight, however there will be a point where the size of the wingspan will create too much weight and drag to be effective. For a glider, which a paper airplane is the more lift the glider has the longer it can fly. However, you must keep the weight and drag in check to avoid flight failure."

Beside this, where is the best place to fly a paper airplane?

So for stable flight, the best place to put the weight is in the middle of the airplane! When you moved the paperclips to the front of the plane, the center of gravity moved in front of the center of lift. Now the weight pulls the front of the plane down.
