Thanks for the replys.

The mike Michaels is amazing but out of my budget for this particular effect.

The you tube link for Ernesto planas does not work for me for some reason.

Contrary to what many of you may hope, of your goal is to impress.......size matters when it comes to way more things than just this effect. Smile

I just thought being you were into Helicopters you would enjoy seeing an original act. You can't do any of this as it is Ernesto's production and act. It is not for sale or available anywhere.

I am thinking there is not a lot of options...perhaps I can build an effect like this but looks as though there are no plans.

I have also seen there is very large scale rc helicpoters...hmmm I wonder.

I have an idea for doing this using black art and making it look like the helicopter is larger than the production platform. If you will PM me your email address, I will try to sketch something up and send it to you. I'm not guaranteeing it will work, it's just an idea.

I used to love to fly R/C helicopters, but never thought about producing one magically.

You. Could try using perspective to your advantage .... Just make it appear right in front of the audiences face? Not. Too close though ..... Those blades can blinking hurt!!!

Didn't Hans Clock (or Fararie sp? ..... Or another illusionist <I am sure I covered all possibilities there>) use an RC helicopter in the build up to the production of a real heli on stage?

Andrew Mayne has an illusion DVD out, he produces a mini motorcycle. I am sure you can substitute the motorcycle for a large RC Helicopter.

I am not sure if the DVD is any good, I do not own a copy myself, but it is atleast worth consideration.

I have been playing with my idea, but I have not been able to get it to look exactly like I hoped it would. When I get a few minutes, I will play with it some more, and hopefully be able to make it work.

As soon as I "have something", I will let you know.

I know Tim Clothier's book Illusion Projects has an r/c car vanish. I don't know if that is any help or not. But I can tell you that everything in his book is solid!
