"Hey Dude, Check Out the Helicopter I Made"

So, uh, this is a pretty impressive little craft...

The caption from The Big Picture (a super cool photo blog from the Boston Globe where I got this photo) says, "Farmer Wu Zhongyuan, 22, sits in his self-made helicopter in Jiuxian county, Henan province, China on August 1, 2009. The local government later halted Wu's plan to fly the helicopter out of safety concerns. The aircraft, powered by a 150cc engine, took Wu two months to build and cost more than 10,000 yuan ($1,460), China Daily reported. (REUTERS/China Daily)."
