How to make a hand launch Mini Helicopter, with popsicle sticks.

The mini Helicopter also call the Bamboo-copter or bamboo dragonfly or Chinese top.It is a toy helicopter rotor that flies up when its shaft is spun. It is originated in Warring States period China around 400 BCE. It was previously built with bamboo, hence the name bamboo-copter.
It is perhaps the first tangible device of what we may understand as a helicopter.
