Default Free Game of the Week: The paperplane challenge

A simple one this week, a paper plane flight simulator. Just how far can you make it go? My tip is to imagine you’ve carefully folded it out of the FSA’s announcement that all bank charge reclaiming cases are on hold!

I think it would have been nice to have credited the person who suggested it. In this case it was suggested by concretecow in the reply to last week's link.
