World and Olympic record set for Flying Whirly Hand Copter
This morning on the 14th floor of the Tribune Tower in Chicago, the world record was just set for the longest distance by a Whirly Flying Hand Copter plastic toy. Matt Maldre, sailed a Mini Whirl-O-Copter for an amazing 20 feet 4 inches!
Rules: This record is for how long it travels horizontally, not vertically. The measuring distance is from the participant's feet to where the copter lands. Expert copter flyers know that the copter will often travel far, but then retreat back a bit. You are not to measure how far it flies in the air, but where it lands.
The new record holder was quoted as saying, "I challenge all you Copter Freaks out there to TRY to break my record. Because i know you CAN'T. muhahahaha." Then he was reportedly seen running away laughing holding the Copter above his head in victory humming the Olympic theme, "Daaaa naaaa da na na na da nana dadanana naaaaaaaa."
