Chopper creator told Briefly News how and why chopper was made

Briefly News reached out to Cornelius Nzapheza, who designed and built the helicopter.

He explained to Briefly News that it took him seven months to design and build the chopper.

Nzapheza, who has a side hustle in which he rents out jumping castles and the chopper, said:

"I used steel rods, corrugated iron, old computers and radios, as well as car parts to design the helicopter.
"It can accommodate four children, and I designed it in a way that it looks like the kids are driving it, whereas I'm the one driving it.
"I used to generators to make it move, and I'm hoping to get it to fly soon.
