Well, for the helicopter ammo, you might be able to modify those dollar store spin helicopter thingies? (the kind where you put them between your hands and spin them) Just be sure to put some weight at the bottom so it won't just tumble. A rifled barred might help too.
As for making the wings bendable (to fit in barrel) flexible glue? maybe the wings are already flexible enough.

For the parachute ammo, I would use a grocery bag with string attached to a 1/2" ball bearing or similar weight. You would have to experiment on folding patterns to make the parachute open at the right time.

The blades are made of a soft plastic. I bought some and they sucked for my blowgun.
