The Curvy Copter Skewb is a hybrid puzzle of both the Curvy Copter and the Skewb (as you might have been able to guess from the name). As well as being able to scramble like any regular doctrinaire hybrid puzzle, the geometry of the puzzle 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.
