To get started you need to construct the helicopter by connecting the blades. When you’re ready blow up the balloon, pinch the balloon at the neck and attach it to the helicopter. Once you let the Balloon Helicopter go, watch it soar up and away as the air makes it take flight. This is all possible because of Newton’s Third Law; for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction! This basically means that when the air is forced down, the balloon is forced upwards.


Included in the pack:

  • Helicopter blades and connector
  • 2 x balloons (made of natural rubber latex)

Recommended for ages seven and over. Not suitable for children aged under three years due to small pieces which could be a choking hazard.

Packaging dimensions: 195 x 80 x 10mm

This product also makes a great classroom teaching resource. This product can be used in classroom activities that align with the Australian Curriculum.

Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces, including Earth’s gravitational attraction, acting on the object

Year 8 - ACSSU155

Energy appears in different forms, including movement (kinetic energy), heat and potential energy, and energy transformations and transfers cause change within systems
