As challenges go, this one was pretty epic. While soaring 2,000 feet up in the blue sky, paramotorist Tucker Gott dropped a paper airplane and then managed to catch it later on before it hit the ground.

After failing the paper airplane drop a few years ago, I’ve wanted to try it again with a different type of paper. I had no idea it would work this well.
He takes to the air using a parachute and a propeller strapped to his back, which gives him the freedom to try fun stunts like launching and catching a paper airplane in mid-air.
Keep going for the video, but the successful release and catch starts at 4:00. He then does the same thing with a little balsa wood plane but catches it in his paraglider’s lines instead of his hand.
