Robinson now has some major competition....


Recommended Posts

"He said he learned the rudiments of flying a helicopter from the Internet and first got the idea of building one from the films he watches on television."


"I watched action movies a lot and I was fascinated by the way choppers fly. I decided it would be easier to build one than to build a car"


Abdullahi does admit that his first helicopter lacks "some basic facilities like devices for measuring atmospheric pressure, altitude, humidity and the like."



I give him about 3 months to live....

Hey, even Igor had to start somewhere, someone from one of the established helicopter companies should offer that guy an apprenticeship.



Igor designed planes long before he created the modern helicopter. I guess its cool that he did it, and it'd be an interesting static display, but when its in the air for any moment of time, its a death trap.

The last time I flew a helicopter that looked like that...... was at the county fair. I was 6 or 7 and it was mounted on a pole and went round and round. :lol:

I wanted to build one like him, but my dad wont let me rip apart the leaf blower and would kill me if I even thought about welding anything to his golf cart.


Besides I dint think they make 2x10's in 24 foot increments.

I think it's awesome that he thinks the government should stop all other orders and go with his designs. Especially with the impressive 7' AGL record to date, I could see that being useful to a government. They could run down people via the roadways without leaving tiremarks. There's a plus.


Other than some ridiculous comments I do think it's impressive that he built it and got it to fly...I'm not sure I could.
