Inflate the black 160 and leave 4 fingers un-inflated.

Make a 2 finger bubble followed by a 1 finger pinch twist.
The rotor blades I make 12 fingers in length.

Make two more 12 finger fold twists for the rotor blades.

The remainder of the 160 I use for the tail fin part of the rotor.
This is a 6 finger bubble, as there is a knot at one end I also add the second knot for symmetry.

Attach the rotor blades into the two pinch twists.

Split the 6 finger bubble in half and attach into the back two pinch twists.
I have one pinch twist vertical and the other horizontal.

And fingers crossed your helicopter will look a little like this?

Thanks for the entry Alex.
If anyone else is entering the competition then there is no need to panic.

The closing date is the 7th of the following month so that those who
order later on in the month have time to enter if they wish.

As the competition closes on the 7th Nov and I usually pick the winner
the next day but will be away at the Hamburg jam so will pick the
winner out when we get back the following weekend.

Thanks to Jana, Alex and Woblee for entering.
I put the names in the random name selector and this months winner is Jana.

Not sure if there are too many prizes to choose from, we are getting a little low.
Off to have a look.
