Helicopter In Flight

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.

taught aerodynamic stability. - Tom]
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.....
Anyway, we've finally drunk enough coffee, so click here to join me on the sharp end.
