For those whom are well versed in atmospherics, the stratosphere is not as airless as most presume. It consists of atomic O2 particles, which is part
of the ozone layer. The blades of the helicopter will need to be adapted to be able to tap into such form of particles to enable lift of those
Secondly, the use of compressed air cannisters on board the chopper may be thrust needed for weight resistance and manovering to allow it to fall off
the horizon to stay in orbit.
Furthermore, as there is atomic O2 there, we will need to create a device to convert it into air to keep the compressed air cannisters well supplied.
As for energy, plenty of that comes from the sun, to work and control the electronics.
All it takes is some sweat and time, which fortunately, high school and college kids do have the time to experiment around with, rather than to work
on same old projects year after year to get grades, and be the first to put a modified chopper into space, to fuel or quest for further space
exploration on the cheap and economical side.
