    Random hinges from home depot usually do well.

    I usually just make them out of round styrene stock and styrene coated wire. The wire has to be the inside diameter of the round stock, serving as the pin. The round stock is cut into 3-5 small sections and glued alternately to the surfaces to be hinged, Then insert the pin and BAM! Done.

    I have also used these prefabbed brass hinges with great success:

    Type hinges into the search bar on that site and they have a few small ones.

    Don't sweat the parts-forming, especially if it's the rotors. They make a great slice-n-dice weapon, but they need a storage spot too.

    If I don't make the hinges myself, then I use Dubro Airline hinges. They are tiny, clear, and wonderful.
