My Homage to the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter

My homage to what will be the greatest flight since the Wright brothers.

Total cost: $6.25
Having your very own Mars helicopter that almost flies: Priceless.




Parts list:

The Guts - I bought a Heli Ball from Five Below and removed the plastic shell $5

I made a 1.25" by 1" box from a sheet of 80lb card stock about $0.50 (could use a Pop Tart box if you wanted) I'll upload the design if anyone wants it.

Wire landing gear - about 20" - maybe $0.75 (if you don't have any around, it's from Walmart)

Very timely. I keep getting those little helicopters to outfit them with cardstock shells, but my son (33 on the 17th) absconds with them before I get a build done
