Peter and Josh opening the show, and getting ready to dive into the building process of the Helicarrier
Peters Helicarrier V1, slightly smaller in size, but a part of the inspiriation for his Helicarrier V2.
The Helicarrier at Horizon Indoor, limping along as Peter described it.
The material used for the hull of the ship.
Peters recommended knife, a 12 point snap-off knife.
A little trick, taping the knife on the box to get an even cut.
Peter mounting the motors to the aluminium spare. He used a U shaped spar.
Getting the bar through the hull required a heatgun and patience. Slowly pushing the hot metal through the foam.
Don't forget to reinforce your spare some wooden cut-outs.
Peter used the thickest green foamguard he could buy to put together the ducts.
You know that mad scientist grin you get when your evil creation works? Yeah Peters most definetly got that. We cannot stress enough to be careful if you try to replicate this. Motors and knives don't go together like peas in a pod.
Apply the craft paper to waterproof the ducts.
The interior skeleton, with supports to help prevent any twisting.
Originally it was a quadcopter, but in need of more power, the guys at Avroto sent Peter a carepackage to transform the Helicarrier into an octocopter.
The life of the machine, hand made by Peter himself. Four 5000MA 3s's.
Just the Helicarrier showing off its ability to float, then take off out of the water.
Josh wraps up this episode with Peter, and asking everyone to give their ideas for future will it fly episodes.
