Jujun Junaedi constructed the aircraft from improvised means in the backyard of his house

Indonesian Jujun Junaedi introduced a self-assembled helicopter. The project took him 18 months and the device is so far ready for 80 percent. However, the man’s desire to never again be stuck in traffic jams at the entrance to the nearest large city is so great that he intends to finish the job at all costs.

Junaedi, who works as a salesman in an auto parts store in Jakarta, does not have an engineering background, and he gathered all the useful information about helicopters from video tutorials on YouTube. The man invested 2100 dollars in creating a personal aircraft and attracted his son and neighbor to work. He called his creation Gardes JN 77 GM.

The homemade helicopter is equipped with a motor of 700 cubic centimeters. According to Junaedi’s calculations, the unit’s power should be enough to lift a device weighing 1.7 tons into the air. In case of emergency, the helicopter has a spare engine for emergency landing.

The man has only to find out whether his car will take off or not – the tests will be held on a field belonging to the Junaedi family.
