Helicopter In Flight



This is photo #11 in a series of 32. You can click here to return to Photo #1.

After knocking off the two scariest pitches, a little levity was in order. The next morning I made a little helicopter from part of a Wall Flower bag, and gave it a test flight. But my design needed a bit of improvement.

Tom achieved an aerodynamic solution by putting a bit of weight on the axis of the rotor in the form of a small rock and some red duct tape, and let it fly!

At this point on the wall, I thought the worst was over. Little did I know what lay in store.....

Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!! [DDEL]

Anyway, we've finally drunk enough coffee, so click here to join me on the sharp end.
