Frog whirligig weathervane

Frog whirligig

(please note this is an untested pattern and may not work as planned)

The pattern has an optional Lily pad weathervane. The actual positioning of the frog and fly have not been determined.  The place to put the frog and fly would have to be tested in the wind as the tongue propeller may act as a weathervane  lilly pad may not be needed.
    I have also contemplated using a small electric motor in the mouth and then attach propeller to motor. This would act as a generator which you could run wire from there to the fly. Using an LED for the fly's body making him light up at night. So I guess that would make him a firefly.

This is the original version 1998 not a lot of changes to the design. The round base is just for display.

The following photo is how the unfinished assembled product should approximately look.
The above diagram is not an exact copy of the photo below and modifications to the pattern have been made. Note the propeller blades need to be set at an angle in order for them to work.
