Get to da chopper! Contraption is this week’s Illustration Friday topic.
This image was inspired by the 1947 contraption called the “Hoppi-Copter” made by Horace T. Pentecost. This single seated flying copter aspired to be “The Motorcycle of the Sky.” You can learn more about the “Hoppi-Copter” on The Hargrave Pioneers of Aviation and Aeromodeling website. I added a jet engine to the back, because well…everything looks more powerful with a jet engine attached.
