How high up or down you decide to make your wing from the spine of you plane is up to you. (My preference shown below.) Use the Force.16

You wouldn’t let a Bald Eagle loose to fly around in your studio apartment would you? Of course not! Get this Thunder Piglet outside for a good throw with your mates! This is, in fact, the best paper plane ever.

P.S. Other known nicknames of said plane in use: Paper Peril, Budget Boomerang, Fertile Duchess, Wobblin’ Goblin.

Enjoy.
