Hunan province, Miluo city, Baitang town, Zhou village, villager Li Housheng achieved his dream of flying. Using ordinary steel, a three-wheeled motorcycle engine and parts, he created a tandem rotor “helicopter” and took it for a test flight. Although the 52-year-old Li Housheng’s education level is not high, he has always had a love of aircrafts. He self-studied the relevant material, prying through it himself.

In August 2013, he started building with his hands this “helicopter,” which has a frame of 5.5 meters, a wingspan of 6 meters, and weights 150 kilograms. The aircraft is powered by the engine of a three-wheeled agricultural motorcycle. The farm is a triangle made of stainless steel pipe. Each rotating blade is made of four pieces of metal. The motorcycle steering wheel steers it. It has throttle and clutch, and a joystick was also made to control flight direction.

Li Housheng already took it for one test flight. The front fuselage got 40 centimeters off the ground.

“Although it has the appearance of an airplane, the flight quality is still far from the idea I have in my heart,” he said. He is preparing to study harder and continue improving the aircraft so that he can fly higher and get closer to his dreams. – Xinhua reporter Long Hongtao
