PLASTICA: Solar Powered Helicopter

This wooden helicopter can actually be solar powered - just leave it in the sun and the solar panels on the propellers will charge to make it spin. It won't make the helipcopter fly on its own but it's still cool for your child to learn about solar energy.

  • They even make helicopters with direction from Hermes.

I bought one of these 'for my son' for Christmas. We went to my parent's house and it was a huge hit -- easy to fly, fantastic hovering and a real sense of flight in front of your nose and in your living room. It goes for about 5 minutes of fly time for 20 minutes or so of charge and our's didn't break -- although there are lots of horror stories of them doing so. Highly recommended. It's funny to think -- when I was a kid, we made a hovercraft out of a little electric motor and egg box. The batteries were connected with wire to mnimise the weight. Nowadays, the batteries are rechargable and small enough to put on board. There are some great (more expensive) 4-rotor&motor 'copters out there that work on a similar principle to this one. I can't wait to see what we get in a few years.

I've always had a soft spot for the UH-H1 Iriquois. I've you've seen any Vietnam movie ever made, you probably saw one of these in there somewhere-they're used for everything from CASEVAC to gunships, and the signature whup-whup-whup sound from their two-bladed rotor has been a welcome sound to American soldiers, sailors, and marines for decades.
