Helicopter fun!

1st Feb 2018

This half term in Design and Technology we have been looking at model helicopters. We started out by designing the landing skids and building a platform for our electrical components to sit on.

This involved using hacksaws and vices!

After a nervous start the children all managed to measure and cut their own wood without the loss of a single finger!!

Next came the planning for how to attach the motor and battery to the base. Its fair to say there were some puzzled faces but after lots of thought the helicopters started to take shape.  

The helicopters are still a 'work in progress' but we wanted to share our work so far.

Check out the photos below and keep an eye out for our finished helicopters!
