I remember this at regionals last year - it was up for so long!
I believe this is actually Smartkid222 in real life.

lolol. Just saying that's not me.
I don't think it was drafts. It might of been but I think that was just the helicopter's fault.

The rotors are about 2 3/4" wide at the tips. Hope I'm not giving away too much information here... The spars are 1" apart with a 20 degree spread between them. I have a plan available for free in .pdf form and was planning on selling laser cut kits (2 helis) for 40 bucks plus 5 for shipping.

NY States was just this weekend, and I took videos of both of Gelinas's helicopters and Murphy's. One of the Gelinas ones was mine and Alika828's; we did it as exhibition, we weren't officially competing. I did ask the judge to be treated as though we were, though. The other Gelinas one came in 2nd, and the Murphy one came in 9th. The judge was nice enough to tell me that if my helicopter was competing, Alika828 and I would have gotten in 8th place. :]

Anyway, does anyone want me to put them on YouTube? I'm not going to unless anybody else wants me to.

What size rubber is that flying on? I assumed it was 1/8, but I wanted to confirm it.

Okay, sorry for the wait. It's up now. :D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRTnOFvRbSU

I think it's funny how it's 9:59. Completely unintentional. Though it doesn't matter much now that the limit changed to 15:00. xD

And yes, I made a new YouTube account just so I could upload this. :P
