A puzzle with a hybrid axis system. It combines the cuts of the Curvy Copter and the Skewb. Its abilities to jumble make the puzzle very special.

This hybrid puzzle combines the cuts of a Curvy Copter and a Skewb and thereby combines the axis systems of a corner turning and an edge turning cube.
The puzzles geometry allows for very interesting jumbling. For example, once you've turned a Curvy Copter edge by the jumbling angle (about 70.53 degrees), you can then turn around a Skewb corner. Alternatively, you can do a Skewb turn, and half way through that turn you can proceed to do Curvy Copter turns. By combining both Skewb and Curvy Copter turns whilst jumbling, the puzzle can result in some very interesting states.

Another feature that allows even more jumbling moves on the puzzle is the curvature of the Curvy Copter cuts. It is the minimal amount of curvature to be able to turn two adjacent axes on the same slice without it being a forced/illegal turn. Whilst this is possible to do on the normal Curvy Copter, pieces are pushed out and it can become rather difficult to turn. On this puzzle those moves are fine, and so you can do moves like this.
