Paperclip Project #1 Helicopter

Introduction: Paperclip Project #1 Helicopter

About: If there is danger I am in, my only exception is heights, they are not for me. I like pyrotechnics and things that blow up or fire.

I am doing a series of paperclip projects, they are useful for more than holding paper after all. I'll be doing lots of instuctables on different projects so follow me and give me more ideas enjoy the 'ible.

Step 1: What You Need

~Everything you need~
×masking tape
×rubber band
×needle nose pliers

Step 2: Unbend

Unbend the long side of the paperclip. Then straighten as much as you can with the pliers.

Step 3: Bend

Bend the middle part of the short end. Then bend one more time.

Step 4: The Flag

Take a 2 inch strip of masking tape and fold it in half over the end of the paperclip.

Step 5: To Fire

Stretch the rubber band over 2 fingers then pull the helicopter on it on the hook part and let go.



Please don't aim this or fire this at anyone this could cause minor injures, be safe and have fun.

How did I do? Please comment and tell me what I did good or could do better. More coming soon.
