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.
