Homemade Helicopter Made from Old Motorcycle Parts

Whilst I have seen many “custom” motorbikes made by entrepreneurial Indians made from the parts of old motorbikes, I have never seen a helicopter made from motorbike parts!

Mubarak Muhammad Abdullahi in Northern Nigeria has managed to used salvaged motorcycle parts to create a working helicopter.

Mubarak is a physics undergraduate at the local university and managed to uses his skills to construct the helicopter. It took him just under eight months to build the machine which is capable of flying to 15 feet  for 3 hours.

It amazes me how such an amazing machine could be created from the things that we in the west would throw out. I think this week, I am going to try and dig around in my “scrap heap” and try and create something amazing! I will keep you posted!
