However, it easily could; that's why I'm wondering what sciolymiester did, assuming his claim is legitimate.

*searches image gallery* I see no chinook there...
link?

Don't worry, it's not worth seeing. It's from my teammates two years ago and while it was a decent concept, it has little to no potential. It doesnt involve twisting the rubber at all...

I remember that. It was a really cool design, but it really didn't seem to have any way to get over ~15 seconds

Would Plastic Wrap/Saran Wrap be too heavy?

Its not too heavy... there's lighter stuff, but Saran wrap works fine.

Better are the produce bags you get at your local grocery. These are basically free (I ask for some and have never been told no). They are also lighter.

To the brave souls attepting Chinook designs:
It seems that most people have two rotors next to eachother as the basis for their designs. When I tried this, it just tipped over and fluttered to the ground. How do you have yours not do this?
Also, is anyone trying a design with three powered rotors?
