comment City scale connection for five-bladed helicopter rotors
I mounted the assembly on a technic peg in a 2x2 round brick on a turntable. It spins very well, but the blades are at different angles every time it stops.

To that point, if I was building for a child, I would definately use Philo's design. As it is, I should build two helicopters, one with each design, and see what I think.

It would rotate better, but there is still a poor connection because of the band as a primary component. If I used the concept that stickers are 'legal' I could increase the diameter of the heads by applying layers until I have a perfect fit, but that doesn't seem fair somehow.

I like this, replacing the 1x5 plates with technic connectors number 1 (bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=32013) and putting a rubber band round it makes it a serious possibility.

comment Why aren't alternate configurations on the back of modern boxes?
I believe the parents complained that there weren't instructions provided for the alternative models, so Lego stopped showing them. I don't know if anyone can confirm this factoid, but I'm sure I read it once somewhere.

comment Any way to create a gear+chain, like for a bike?
Is this a human-size riding bike, or a smaller scale model?

comment Brick-built alternative to “Door 2 x 5 x 5 Swivel, Bracket Base”
I worked out that an upside-down plate would function as a bottom hinge, this design is still not perfect.

I found a much better solution, so I replaced my previous improvements.

Fair enough, the, 'back of the door,' problem could be solved with inverse tiles (bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=11203), the attachment at the top of the door could be a half-peg onto one of those rods underneath the 1x? plates, but the stiffness is still a problem, maybe some more SNOT with some L-panels (bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=4865). mounted on a sideways 1x? plate.
