Description

This is an awesome helicopter model, complete with main rotor, tail rotor, and landing skids. The tail boom is removable, but fits snugly. Make this as the first piece in your MakerBot aircraft collection, or give one to your favorite aspiring pilot. You never know how far a little inspiration can go.

I can print every piece except for the propeller on my Thing-O-Matic.  Had to scale that down by .92 and then drill out the center to make it fit.  Photos soon to follow.
