Step 1: Materials
I used a #1 size.
2) A Rubberband. Just the normal size will do.
3) Some medium weight tape. Masking tape is GRRRREAT!
NOW LET'S GET STARTED!
Step 2: Paperclip Manipulation
I am not responsible for your stupidity. I am not responsible for any harm which may occur in the next few steps or after successful completion and testing of this instructable. Do NOT shoot the Helicopter at people, animals, or those inbetween.
Well, that's outta the way.
For step one, all you need to do is take the LARGE loop of the paperclip and straiten it out....It doesn't need to be too incredibly strait.
Step 3: More Manipulation
Step 4: Final Manipulation
Your paperclip should now look like a shepards staff.
Step 5: Apply the "flag"
Go ahead and wrap the tape together around the stem of the paperclip. It should look like the picture.
Step 6: TIME TO PLAY!
Take your Paperclip helicopter and hook it to the rubberband as seen in the photo.
pull it down and let er' rip!
What you should witness is the copter going about 15-20 feet in the air, then coming down in a quick "helicopter blade" like motion.
When it lands, pick it up and do it again.
3 flies up is fun with buddies.
