I have had a question about the propeller I used. As mentioned above in the component list it comes from a toy helicopter but here is my playlist of projects that include making the propeller as part of the project Making Propellers playlist
and here is my video showing typical bargain store items you can get propellers from

Here is the answer to another question for more detail. The propeller shaft 00:34 is a paperclip and it is in a plastic assembly 00:57 taken from an old rubber band powered plane that slides over the end of the wooden stick 01:12 At the other end the paperclip is glued to the wooden stick. I use hot glue and that holds the paperclip in place on the stick fine but you could drill a hole if you want however that might weaken the wood and make it split. You could hold it in place by wrapping cotton round it and then add some glue on top of that. If you don't have the plastic assembly for the propeller bearing you could make one from some plastic tubing and more paperclips like I do in this project or maybe just bend a piece of metal cut from a tin as shown in this project I found on the web

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
