    ok thanks. by the way, are those circle things that link the tail and the main rotor together also made out of paper? if they are then i am definately going to make this. i always wanted to make the chopstick and the penni helicopters but i don't have the toolsto make that circle thing. also to carve a blade. so if the whole thing is made out of paper.... :grin:

    Yup - all paper, with some added rubber bands and paperclips. Not actually built it yet - probably a project for over Christmas - but I'm really looking forward to it, mostly because I'm desperate to see if I can actually make it fly!
