Mbatha helicopter


Homebuilt helicopter built by Vusimuzi Mbatha of South Africa, made from various recycled scrap. The rotor is powered by a motorbike battery and a Playstation controller is used to control it. The machine also features a television, clock, and two-way radio. It was shown to the Bidvest Protea Coin security service to inspect it for safety, and it was decided that the design needed revisions before test-flying. To help Mbatha with the project financially, the company offered to help him seek employment to earn a sufficient income.
