It’s often sad when a cool toy or gadget gets broken. Luckily there is no need to toss it in the trash, why not hang onto it and build something out of it when inspiration comes knocking. That is what John from Team Droid did when his RC Helicopter had an accident.

"I had a toy helicopter that had lost it’s tail rotor in an unfortunate accident. I didn’t want to part with it because the main rotor still spun and heck it’s a remote control helicopter. I proceeded to turn the once state of the art in toy chopper technology into a regular airplane."
