To make a gyrocopter, begin by cutting out a 17cm long by 4cm wide strip of paper. At the top, cut a 7.6cm slit down through the middle of the strip to create a pair of wings. Next, fold the wings down in opposite directions from one another and finally attach a paper clip to the bottom of the strip for weight.

Gyrocopters which are also known as autogyro or gyroplane use an engine that drives the propeller at the rear of the aircraft which creates the forward thrust. As the plane then starts moving forward, air rushes through the underside of the blades and causes them to spin and create lift.
