Oh wow! :D  I've only just come upon this Jumbo, thanks for posting it. (Haven't seen you for a while, hope you're enjoying your life of parental bliss :wink: )

I must say origami gliding looks really cool. I might have to have a try. It'll give me more exercise than just standing still while flying.

(Maybe you should try it Fred :wink: A morning of origami gliding would equal the calories from at least one BBQ hot dog  :P )
