I'm going to put the method I came up with (and doubtless countless other people have) to solve it. It's not fast or advanced but it does the job.
1. Unjumble.
2. Solve the bottom corners+EO of F2L edges.
3. Solve EO on U.
4. Solve 2 corners on U.
5. Use a super long conjugate to orientate the last 2 corners.
6. Use non-junbling comms to solve as many centres as possible.
7. Use jumbling comms to solve the rest of the centres.
I figure out the comms on the spot so I haven't written anything down. It'd be nice to see this speed-optimised a little bit, and yeah, I'd support it as an event although events would have to be removed or another solution found (such as limiting how many events someone can do or how many people can sign up to an event).

Need some help here. What is the alg for this jumble CePLL case? (Switch the red and blue triangles that I pointed)

Ps: Is this even possible?

How can I do that? I couldn't cycle those 3 pieces.
Well generally you can do things like (UR+ LF+ UF UR- LF-) to swap two pairs of centers, one within a single orbit and one pair of centers from different orbits. It is not so hard to use moves like this to get centers in appropriate orbits.

What curvy copter should I get (Australia)? I can't seem to find anything but the lanlan one, is it ok? Like 20aud ok?

The lanlan is perfectly fine. It's actually easier to do jumbles on, which is preferential for a jumbling puzzle like Curvy Copter.


Copter is a fairly old puzzle, but it's only being put into a more serious light recently. I'd still get one anyway, however.


Speed copters might become a thing if it turns out that this is a popular puzzle, which seems exciting. (I'm actually in the process of designing one now!)

I came up with a copter icon that could possibly be used if it becomes an event:
This might prove to be very useful, but for our weekly competition we are using the icon set from the WCA (I am adding icons as we add non-official events), and they must be in SVG format. Do you have this in SVG format? Also, they need to match the general dimensions of the others in the set, based on a 500 x 500 grid. You can check the others out on github:
