Luck O' the Irish

Published on March 11, 2015

In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, and always wanting to find the pot of gold, I decided to create a helicopter-ish Leprechaun transporter.  The premise is.....that the Leprechauns can scout the skies looking for the rainbow with the pot of gold at the end, quietly descend, load up the gold in the basket, and fly off undetected!  The blades of the copter are rainbow-colored to blend in with the rainbow, the blue basket blends with the sky, the 'clouds' are also a decoy and muffle the sound of the motor, and the flashing led light gives the appearance of a firefly should the vehicle be moving at night.  Saves a lot of leg work running from rainbow to rainbow,and is a peaceful way to travel!
