Choppy Helicopter
Construction Plans

The Adams-Wilson "Choppy" single-seat helicopter is undoubtedly the best known and most popular homebuilt helicopter ever developed. Also known as the Flying Triumph or Hobbycopter, this design was the inspiration for a number of other successful homebuilts, including the A/W-95 and the Scorpion-I. The 40-page, 11" X 17" Construction Manual provides all necessary details for building this affordable aircraft.
