Amazing Ninja Tri-Star Boomerang! (Flies Back)


Hey, what’s up guys it’s Rob, and welcome
to my tutorial for: The Ninja Tristar Boomerang! On my last Ninja Star
Boomerang video, I got some requests to try to do a three-pointed boomerang and
after some trials and fails, I finally came up with this one that flies like
this: I also called and challenged Jeremy Shafer to try to make his own
boomerang and he made one that flies just like this: You can check out his
video by clicking the card above or the link in the description. After you learn
how to make it and also throw it like I show at the end of the video, people are
really gonna want one. So if you do enjoy eight-and-a-half by eleven letter slice
printer paper like this which will then can have their own and they don’t have
to try to take yours. I’m using an eight-and-a-half by eleven letter sized
printer paper like this which we’ll then turn into a triangle with three equal
sides. This is also known as an equilateral triangle and each side is
9.75″ or nine and three-quarter inches long. That makes the
height basically the width of the paper which is eight and a half inches. Knowing
all this here’s the bonus comment. Now your dimensions of the triangle are
correct to make an equilateral triangle we can use any size rectangle like I
said I’m using eight and a half by your dimensions of the triangle are
correct. To make an equilateral triangle we can use any size rectangle. Like I
said, I’m using eight and a half by neatly as possible hold it there and
make a crease on the left side then you can open it back up and this next fold
is the most important we’re going to neatly as possible. Hold it there and
make a crease on the left side. Then you can open it back up and this next fold
is the most important. We’re going to corner along the middle there until that
top edge lines up with the upper-left top edge here is lined up from the middle all the
way to the upper left so just slide the crease all throughout the right side
like that here you can see the upper corner just like that. Once you have
it positioned there then you can make a crease all throughout the right side
like that. Here you can see the upper using letter size paper like me then you
can make a mark on the middle here with the middle and upper left. If you
are better with measurements and you’re here all the way to the upper left and
that should measure eight and a half then you could just take the right
corner here fold it directly on to that here all the way to the upper left and
that should measure eight and a half. Then you could just take the right
corner here fold it directly on to that line and go from there.
Once you have that fold, we’re going to like this once you have it lined up like
that then you can make another crease on the right side I like to tear it but if
you do want to cut it that’s fine I’m like this. Once you have it lined up like
that then you can make another crease on the right side. I like to tear it but if
you do want to cut it that’s fine. I’m over I’m going to start the tear here on
top and just pull the two edges apart do fingernail on the left. Then I’m going to
open both of the edges up and flip it over. I’m going to start the tear here on
top and just pull the two edges apart do you’ll notice that all sides are the
same and it looks the same no matter you have an equilateral triangle. If you
made the equilateral triangle properly, down on this crease we already have here
it should wind up directly in the middle which way you hold it. If you take the
top corner of the triangle and fold it three corners or vertices in these
directions we can take the bottom left of the bottom side. Now we’re going to
split the triangle in half along its three corners or vertices in these
directions. We can take the bottom left line it up like this you could hold it
and make a crease on the left side then meeting them up like this and also
meeting up the two edges here. Once you line it up like this you can hold it
and make a crease on the left side then you could open it up again. Now we can
do the same with the other corners. Take should have something like this and I’m
just going to draw on the new creases take the bottom right meet it to the top
as well and do the same thing. So now you should have something like this. I’m
just going to draw on the new creases that we just made so you could see them
easier. At the middle of the triangle there’s an
intersection point and from that determine the width of the airfoil flap
on the front and because we want all “side lines”. I’ve drawn those in red. The
next folds are important and will determine the width of the “Air Foil” flaps
on the front, and because we want all three equal, I recommend you use a ruler.
On the red side lines I’m going to make three marks a quarter inch from the
center. Here’s one, there’s two, and there’s three. Don’t forget that the
quarter inch is this one right here. We’re now going to take all three sides
and fold them directly on to the points that we made on the side lines here. I’m
just going to rotate it like this so crease along the top and I’m just gonna
make it nice and sharp by running my point here directly on to that top point
that I have. Then, I’m going to make a do the same with this one so just fold
the second one down to the point and fingernail against it. Then, we could open
it up and I’m just going to rotate it now. Do the same with this one. So just fold
the second one down to the point and give it a sharp crease on top, and then
you could open it rotate it and fold the last one down. Give it a sharp crease.
Now you can unfold it, and you should have something that looks like this.
We’re now going to take this bottom right corner and we’re just going to
pinch it together like this. Just take take the bottom edge and the right edge
and press them in like this so that against it like this. Then, we’re
going to set it down and we’re going to sticking up once these two edges are
both flattened down we’re going to take this corner here that we’ve been holding
on to and then just pull the corner down sticking up. Once these two edges are
both flattened down, we’re going to take then we can just open it up and we’re
just going to rotate it so that this like this and then make a crease right
around here. Then, we can just open it up and we’re
just going to rotate it so that this edge is now on the bottom. Then we can
do the same thing: pinch the bottom right corner, make sure it’s aligned on both
sides, and then flatten the bottom and corner flatten the edges and pull the
corner down and flatten it so flatten it out. Then we could work on the
last one. Just rotate it, pinch the corner, flatten the edges, and pull the
corner down and flatten it. So, everything’s going to be put in a
clockwise direction like this. Just put all the corners and the edges like
that. As you’ll see, they’re kind of going in this direction and flatten it out. So
you should have something that looks just like. So I’m just gonna flip it over
like this, and you’ll see here we have those three marks on the back. That’s not
what we’re going to be paying attention to for this next step. We’re actually
going to be making a mark in the center of the paper right here. We’re going
to hold the triangle so that the point is facing down like this, and we’re going
to be taking this edge here and folding edge and bring it down like this
straight down to the middle and make paper. So just set it down on the table. I’m just going to take this whole right here where the crease is and walk
your finger to the left and this might sure that this fold stays on top of
itself. Now when you do that just hold it right here where the crease is and walk
your finger to the left. This might try to lift up, what you can do is just
go like this and flatten it out first and then really flatten it on top like
that. We’re just going to walk our finger up to this point right here, you
don’t want to fold this down. We’re and we’re just gonna rotate it and do
the same exact thing take the next edge give it a good crease from here all the
way to the end. Then you can open it up and we’re just gonna rotate it and do
the same exact thing. Take the next edge right point that’s sticking up same
thing with the last one we’re just gonna left, flatten the edge out, and then press
down in that little pocket behind the right point that’s sticking up. Same
thing with the last one. We’re just gonna fold the edge all the way down to the
middle and walk our fingers to the left. As you’ll see there’s a little overhang
on the left side, and then you could just we closed it down in a clockwise
direction except this time what’s going this now. We’re gonna do the same
thing that we did on the other side when we closed it down in a clockwise
direction, except this time what’s going to be in a counterclockwise direction as
you’ll see here, I tore it a little bit but it shouldn’t be a problem. That was
just when I used the pen. We’re just gonna press down
like this so that this edge is then you can open these two and do the
same thing twist it clockwise fold down see these two edges meet in the middle. Then just flatten it out like that. Then you can open these two and do the
same thing twist it clockwise fold down on this bottom edge and also on the top
edge. Push right here and then push right here, and press down in the middle
all the way down like that. Open it, twist it clockwise, push down on
the bottom edge and make sure that these two edges stay together. Press down until
it goes all the way to the middle. All flip it over like this and I’m going to
fold this over hang down all the way it should be in a counterclockwise
direction. Flatten it out. Now we could flip it over like this and I’m going to
fold this overhang down all the way down to here. So I’ll zoom in so you can
see it. I’m gonna take this, fold it all the way down even in the corner where it
doesn’t want to go. Just kind of press it especially in the corner you can kind of
just give it a little tug and fold it good crease. Rotate it do the same
exact thing. Fold it all the way down to press it down as far down as you can
but don’t pull too hard do the last one down just like that. So it will be a
little bit angled, that’s okay just try to press it down as far down as you can
but don’t pull too hard. Do the last one. And you’re all done and I’ll show you
how to make the boomerang fly really well and how to throw it. So, I’m going to
show you why we need to make sure that it’s really neat and we have to adjust
it . So I just finished this one. I’m going to hold it with the flaps on
the left and give it a shot. Okay so it kind of fell to the ground and didn’t come back.
Looking at the boomerang, I can kind of see that these are sticking up. So what
I’m going to do is first hold it with my fingernails then I’m just gonna lift
it up and as you can see here I’m just making sure it’s nice and flat,
creasing both edges of the arms with my fingernails. Then I’m just gonna lift
it up and as you can see here I’m just gonna crease every single airfoil or
flap with my fingernail very sharply. Now what I’m going to do is holding the
flaps facing downwards like this on the table I’m gonna take my finger, my
pointer and thumb, and I’m gonna round so curl the wings and the tips a little
bit away from the flaps I’d like that much just like that. Do that with all
three of them. Curl the wings and the tips a little
bit away from the flaps side like that. Alright so let’s see how it flies now. I’m going to hold it between my airfoil right about there
and I’m gonna hold it between my pointer not on the tip. I’m going to hold it
right at the edge or the end of the Air Foil right about there. I’m gonna hold it between my pointer and middle finger like this making sure
that the flaps are facing to the left. I’m going to curl my wrist like this
and I’m going to basically flick it out like that and let it roll out of my hand.
so I’m going to throw it kind of vertically tilt it a little bit to the
left. Let’s give it a shot There you go that’s much better. The one
that I made with eleven by seventeen inch paper flies a little bit better
actually. Thanks for watching my video for the new
Ninja Tri-Star boomerang. I hope you Paper boomerangs can be really sensitive
to bends and stuff like that in the paper, so if you find it flying funky
after a few throws you’ll have to re-flatten it, sharpen the creases again and
also fix the tips to make it fly well again. Let me know what you thought of
the video in the comments below and also what you’d like to see next and I might
try to make it. thanks and I’ll see you next time
