The Instructions...


Some advice on the steps pictured above:

  1. Print the above cut-out. 
  1. Cut the shape.
  1. Fold down the two rotors - one towards you and one away from you.
  1. Add a small weight to the bottom like a paper clip.
  1. When your paper helicopter is ready, drop it from a small height and watch it spin softly to earth. Enchanting.
This is a simple and traditional design. See my Spinning Ghost design for a really classy paper toy.
