Instructables
this little helicopter toy has origins in many cultures and was perhaps first a japanese toy inspired by falling leaves. with the right work, this can easily fly 30-50 feet in the air.

 This looks really cool but i think you should make it into a slide show or people will think it supposed to have instructions.

there's two (or more...) ways to do this. one is to use a tounge depresser (the thick popsicle stick type)-get it wet and hot (boiling water or 10-20 secs in the nuker) then twist and hold untill cool. the other is to cut the blades out of a rectangular piece of wood. (the angle of the blade should be around 15 degrees). ether way, drill the center (measure it, be sure or it will wobble and not fly as well) and glue in a dowel/stick. watch which way you wind the string or spin it between your hands-depending on which way the twist is you will go up or down.
Yes just go back and add it
this is what should have been published in the instructable, not in the comments.

Drill hole in handle. Drill hole in part of PVC pipe(easier to find than whatever the hell that is). Wind string. Pull. Watch it as it flies right into your face. Try again.
