Modified Old Oz Rotor Hoop reinforcement

Its modified since I've actually encased the paper clip in epoxy. I had a clean break at the edge of one of the hoops (see first pict.) which I sealed with cyanoacrylate. Then I used a large paper clip, using the handle of a paintbrush to give the two ends the correct bend. Finally applied 5 minute metal filler epoxy to the side and top and bottom edges, such that the clip is no longer visible. I don't know if this is going to be any stronger than the original Old Oz version. No crash after this to test, but heli did flip to the side while the blades were rotating (but power off) during a landing, and hoops intact.
