WOW, this looks great :)
Will it solve like a super cube version of a Curvy Copter? As the 'hidden' edges of the helicopter cube are now exposed and the 'centre' now have orientation?

Again I am amazed at the quality of craftsmanship that you use on your creations, keep them coming.

Wow! The shape of this puzzle (Stellated Octahedron) always gets me. It's like TomZ's Tetrahedral Twins.
Really great work.

Holy cow!!!!! It looks very pretty with stickers on. Yeah I'm in the museum.

"Worlds first Dual Helicoptrahedron made Darren & Traiphum's" To much for a sticker damn.

That is one of my favorite hand-made puzzles in quite a while. I love the stickering!

Yes, Claus.
firstly we have designed flat tetrahedron like Tom's Tetrahedral Twins
But my hand made work has limit can't do flat like that so the Tony's sculpture is my selection. just small different shape.

I dont know how quite different between word "who give idea & designer & invertor" I choosed "designer"
if three word have a point 1-10
Idea - 2, designer - 6, invertor - 10, am I right? :P

Idea = my every tetrahedron puzzles can do like this "Dual Helicoptrahedron"
Design = must make my gear mastermorphix tobe this "Dual"
Invertor = all in one and finish making

This shape would work quite nicely for a Helicopter+2x2 combo. Nice job!

I'm very sorry if I took most or all of the credit for this build because I was very enthusiastic about people loving our puzzle that I had some small input of making it for the first time. Trust me if I make anything it's going to look like a glop of plastic that won't be moving ever!

Thank you for clearing this up.

For the general audience: I ask these questions because I need to know what to enter in the field "inventor".
In this case I will enter "Traiphum Prungtaengkit" because in cases of doubt the builder (the one who did the "dirty" work; or at least most of it) is entered. The other participants are always mentioned in the long description so they don't get lost too.

Oops!! Sorry Darren, I wrote prefer to Darren is designer, I am just a builder (4 points :P ) that build followed Designer.
6+4=10 so we are co-inventer :D

And believe me, I will never imagine to this puzzles if Darren don't designed on the Helicopter cube. :D
