Looks like a Chinook helicopter. I am flying kites today at Portishead near Bristol UK and spotted this helicopter flying over so I tried to zoom in and focus on it with my Canon Powershot SX60 HS. Holding it steady at full zoom without the tripod is always difficult.

We get them fly along the coast where i live. A month or 2 back the local pages on facebook were buzzing with the site of an apache helecopter. Quite a rare sight in the uk as theres not many in raf service.

Before you slowed the video down i thought that Chinook is going quick for one of them, but at the end i noticed it was flying down wind. The workshop i rent has a major light aircraft airlane passing over it that the Army use when they are going from Middle Wallop ( ouch ! ) to Thetford, One day Four Chinooks, two with underslung Land Rovers, accompanyed by Apaches flew over, i wish i'd had my camera with me.

I was discussing gliders with my brother in law and he described one he had. It rang a bell for me as I remembered seeing one on a YouTube video so as soon as I got home I searched it out and made my version. Here is the video I based my version on https://ai-tube.com/videoai/O3KjLfNWeIb

I have seen a lazy version in the shops in the style of a gun. You place the "projectile" at the front on a circular fixing and as you slide it up the barrel it stretches elastic bands,then you add the twists. When you fire the "weapon" it spins up the shaft as it is launched. I didn't buy one but it looked like fun http://zingtoys.com/zing-air/zyclone

I also found this on Amazon X-zylo Gyro Launcher

There are probably 100s of these on YouTube already, just search for X Zylo, here is a selection.
