Helitopter
« on: November 11, 2010, 12:00:25 PM »

I'm not sure if this would count as a yo-yo trick or a top trick at a contest, but either way, it was fun.  My first attempts at a SutterCopter style helicopter with a top and a yo-yo. I gotta work out some kinks, but so far... I like it :)

Vintage Takeshi, nice!

I like to watch it but I don't think I have what it takes to practice that trick.

You may have invented a whole new style of playing!

Looks like there will have to be a new yo-top division in competitions.

Just now I realize the name is Helitopter not Helicopter  ;D
Maybe this version should be called YoTopter (yoyotopter, yolitopter?) and leave Helitopter for the double spintop version: are you going to attempt that?

not as kid friendly, but i would have called it hellyotopter, or, if i had to
try to learn it, hellnotopter.
that has got to be one of the coolest tricks ever, whatever you call it!

lol, thanks guys!

The original name was "Hella-Topter", but I wanted to make it a little more family friendly. 

I have been working HARD on a top top helicopter type trick the past 4'ish years and while it IS possible, it's totally kicking my butt!  The top in my right hand goes over and under (like in helitopter) and the top in my left hand is laying horizontal at the bottom of the string which is pinched in my left hand.  The horizontal top does 1 around the world in one direction then precesses 180 and then I do an around the world in the other direction... over and over and over.... it's soooo tough.  I'll get it one day though.  OH!  You are all welcome to try it... PLEASE!  lol, the timing is rough!

Now yoyo-top tangler is something I definitely want to try!  I am pretty darn sure it is possible, but probably not for more than a couple repetitions.  I some of the 2A yo-yo players can do something similar.  I'll try :)
