This template specially made for AR Drone 2.0 pilots who want to customized their drone hull. It is when my hobbies merged together, piloting AR Drone 2.0 and paper modeling. It’s started when Parrot gave me a unit of the new version 2 drone as a gift for my involvement in their promotion campaign, which is a paper model contest in this site in July 2012. Since that time I decided to do this hobby and now I have two drones. I made a 1:3 AR Drone 2.0 with both outdoor and indoor hull model for that contest. That one third model is not accurate so I made a new one with 1:1 scale by measuring the original hull, so it will fit into the real drone. I made the template last night, print it today and build it just now. I took some picture of it while it still on the ground and while flying as well. I took pictures while the drone in auto-hover mode on quite strong breeze, but I had to do that before it’s getting dark (5 PM). Please understand this hull can not function like the original hull. It can not protect the battery and specially the front mounted camera on impact or in a crash, it's light weight but it is not strong enough. Make sure to tighten the hull to the drone base because it can loose by the strong wind, you can use magnet sheet but I use double adhesive tape. Once again use it by understanding your own risk, I can not guaranty it will work to everybody. I also add blank patterns on the the last pages.

Glundung Pringis - Supernatural Creature Paper Craft
This one is a Halloween themed paper craft. Glundung Pringis (Javanese) or "Rolls and Grinds" is a type of supernatural entity, it's not like an ancient myth which apart in distance past, this creature was last seen and was reported in 1965 in central Java according to a book about Java supernatural creatures, unfortunately I didn't remember exactly the title of the book and the name of the author, but I remember it's in English and the author is an American expatriate. I also heard about this creature beside other creatures from my parent stories when they were kids in Yogyakarta. This creature is mainly a head, or whole body looks like a head. According to the book, it's not as like as many people and articles said, this creature is not a human head. It's pretty bigger than normal human head with wider mouth line, but it's not human. Its favorite playground is on the ground where bamboo leaves lies as a soft carpet under bamboo trees. Its behavior rolling around and playing on the ground. There was some encounter with human being with this creature in the wild, it rolls, stops and grinding :D, funny huh?
Kepler Space Telescope - NASA Spacecraft Paper Model
This is a NASA spacecraft paper model, a space telescope, launched in 2009 with the solely mission is to help scientist to find habitable planets that are outside our solar system. Earth like planets that have been discovered so far are 77 planets. The templates consist of 4 pages of patterns, I use 1/48 scale on this model. That is a rough scale, it’s not very accurate. And I just realized on Kepler official website there are 3d models of it :p. This model is made from 3d model that I made my self by using photos and pictures as references. You can display this model in two way by using display stand, first just like floating in space with high beam of suspender or on the ground. I made this model because Mars Curiosity model that I made have good feedback. This model also can be use as an educational tool.
