A talented young Nigerian man has single-handedly built a helicopter using locally sourced materials.
The man, identified as Ahmad Shuaibu showcased the ability of his homemade aircraft by test-running it in a compound.
Ahmad has also called on the Nigerian government to assist him in constructing the aircraft up to standard.
He shared a video of the helicopter via his TikTok handle. The video shows how he constructed the aircraft he named ZZD59.
In one of the videos, he is seen test-running the helicopter in a compound. He made small attempts at flying with it and afterwards got off the aircraft.
Ahmad called on the Nigerian government to help him further develop the project.
Here are some social media reactions to the video:
“That helmet nor that Honda going to protect either one of you if those blades start flying! Keep up the good work.”
“Obviously the thrust from the rare droughts is too week. change the length of the rare or increase the power of the motor.”
“I very seriously recommend you get a seat belt with shoulder straps on. If you fall out it’s going to be really bad.”
