About this creation
Been a while since I updated my corporate military faction, how does that spiel go again?
The time is not far off when corporations will openly control the world. Even now, the politicians chosen for you to vote for are pawns of the corporations, puppets whose strings are pulled by the highest bidder. Every day, laws are passed that expand the rights of the corporations at the expense of the rights of the people. For now it serves the corporations' purpose to operate under the protective cloaks of various governments, but when the corporations have gained enough control, these government entities will become superfluous and obsolete. A CEO will replace the head of state. The legislative body will become a board of directors. There will be no more citizens, only consumers. No countries, only companies. No national flags, just corporate logos.
Lucky thing I still remember how to cut and paste.
Obligatory link to Robert Johnson, because you have crappy taste in music and have never heard of him.
As an avid conspiracy theorist, a black helicopter has been on my to-build list forever.
Inspired in two ways by Shannon Ocean -- not only his visit in June (immediately after which I built this), but his Superhind which I had then just recently seen and which this can only wish it was as cool as.

Can you please share your technique for five bladed rotors?
Five hinge plates each opened to an angle of 72 degrees and all arranged back to back to form a star. The pulley wheel piece with 6 holes and a groove in the rim (you can see it in the top of the rotor) fits pretty well in the space in the middle of the star. There is another pulley wheel pressed up to it underneath with a thin rubber tire on it to keep the rotor assembly from skidding around when you spin the axle.
That's some serious, massive, well armed and threatening chopper! One of the best if not the best on MOC Pages! I'll think very seriously about your design for my future big ship's helicopter!
Very nice work!
Stout, heavily-armed, and ready for battle -- I love it! This is precisely the type of brute force that will be employed to brush those pesky "Occupy Wherever" consumers out of our company green areas. First the media arm must paint them as unwashed hippies living in a dream world, then convince the masses that we, the Conglomorate, had no choice but respond in kind to their armed attacks. (It's great to see a post from you -- I just love the profile of this beast. It looks like it would be perfect in an urban combat situation!)
She looks as tough and mean as a bulldog man and you've packed in a number of clever tricks with the five bladed rotor, weapons and the skids. The only thing I would say is that cockpit might be too deep, if you could take a few plates off the height? Otherwise, rock on bro!
