It was asserted, in this episode, that the first fully functioning helico-pter flew in the 1700s in France but I happened to see an old clip of QI where Stephen tells us the first (admittedly small and toy-like) example was from China in 4th century AD. Clip

Is there a distinguishing feature of the French one that qualifies it better as a helico-pter or is it one of those stale facts that becomes less true over time?

Also you guys missed the solid gold opportunity to call that food-based programme Meal or No Meal
