A fan made from a hand powered flashlight and an R/C helicopter. This fan provides a pleasant breeze to the user in exchange for some light cranking.

Step 1: The Flashlight

I unscrewed the screws on the outside and the ones under the cover (mentioned below)

I then removed all the circuitry, the upper casing , and the generator.
Nice work.
thank you!
