Step 3: Cuts and Folds

Now that you have cut the piece of paper to length, it's time for the next step. Cut on the solid lines and fold on the dotted. Fold A forwards, and B backwards. Fold both C and D inwards. Also, fold E upwards for wieght at the bottom. When you are done, it should look like picture 2.

Step 4: Wanna Go Farther

The blades on the helicopter should be big when your done, but if you want to make it spin faster cut the blades thinner like in picture 2.

www.paperairplanes.co.uk/I believe this was stolen from a site I use to go to, unless you gave the owner of www.paperairplanes.co.uk/ the drawings, letters, and design? Hmmm. Or maybe you are the owner, if so... sorry if I seem rude...
The design is pretty basic. I just found a good photo on the web.

I thinkk its true they have the same design but I also think that this design is pretty classic and that I've seen it before other places. And you don't seem rude... just suspicious. Haha.
Hehe, awesome! I did this in science class as a project, and I've done it before too, it's really fun and cool. Great job!
