Rescue copter

The recovery animation of drowning vehicles in Tiny Wheels is making some progress. Vehicles no longer levitate back to the track: an helicopter flies in and actually pick them up, see for yourself:

The animation is not fully finished yet: I want to draw the vehicles a bit bigger when they are in the air. When this is done, it should be good enough.

The helicopter comes from a nice line drawing of the Super Puma I found on Wikipedia. I compressed it a bit vertically to match the proportions of the other elements in the game, then pixelled it in 3 parts: the body, the propeller and the propeller top.

At first I didn't like the yellowish color of it, but it's growing on me. What do you think?
