Awesome! That's my favorite helicopter!

Now of course you are going to need to produce plans for us like in the DIY Foamies forum.

What did you make this out of? I was thinking of using a foam egg carton for this.

I bought hefty brand foam dinner plates...really strong and light.... I built a sea king also which I have flown around inside so I know weight is not going to be a factor. The hole package was about $3.00 and I've already built 3 bodies with 3/4 of a package left.

This is a pic I think of using...I've been drawing and erasing...and modifying.

I wanted to bolt in the frame so I made a new body...the other body had the original body post...you can see the slits on the sides of the original. So, I made a new body...not happy with the forward section but it will do for now at least until I figure out the vacuum forming table I made. I I figure I can cut the front off and attach a lean one when I make it.

If anyone wants the original let me know...
