Introduction: Origami Helicopter

An origami helicopter made out of gum wrappers.  The rotor was made from the inside wrapper that holds the sticks in place in a 15 pack of Five gum.  All the rest are wrappers off the sticks.  I chew different kinds - that's why there are so many colors.  The rotors - main and tail, both spin freely and won't fall off even if you turn it upside down.  The steering wheel spins 360 and the windshield wiper goes back and forth.  I wanted to make the windshield wiper powered by the rotor somehow.  Maybe next time.   This is my first helicopter - let me know what you think.

That's not origami! Ya it's friggin awesome but its not considered origami. Origami is Japanese for paper folding in which they fold paper into things. No glue no adhesives at all.
