Just came across this video online, found it on youtube but there was no information on it.



Now hows that for personal helicopter transportation?

I think you basically have to be a daredevil or have no reason to live in order to take it above the 25ft. benchmark


Its very cool that people are thinking outside the box, how long till their will be something more practical and safe, but roughly the same size.

Never fly it any higher than you are willing to fall. And make sure spectators keep their distance.

Kinda neat though.

this helicopter was bieng built and tested in matsumoto nagano, japan.

i was driving with my wife and we saw a wierd thing on the back of a truck, she asked me what it was, thinking it was some kind of hoel boring device i thought i would be a smart arse and i said "a helicopter'

as we travelled behind it and i looked at the strage configuration i realised it was in fact a helicopter.

i was astounded ... we have 2 photos of it being transported on the back of a small bongo truck flatbed!!

it was amazing!!!
wish i had followed him and seen it fly!!

awesome to spot others looking into this machine!

That thing does not look very safe. Wow. But imagine flying over your town or city in one of those. That would be a blast.

I'd honestly take the thing to it's max height, whatever that is, and I'm not joking. It would be fun as hell, I would mod it too so I could do tricks and put on shows

Any engine that small that puts out that much power isn't going to have the longest life expectancy, nor will it be very reliable.

I saw the Bat Copter from the tv show on the back of a flatbed semi once. That was awesome!

Ok I don't think that would be very safe lol. I wouldn't take it very high at all.

This is WAY safer than a Boeing or any commercial jetliner.

Why?

I checked the technical specs.

Unlike a jetliner, it comes with a parachute if all the engines fail.

Each engine has a built in spare...in short it has 4 engines.

To sum up... would you take a cheque for that or will you accept Visa. SALE!

I think I'll just stick with my car.

Don't need a parachute if the engine in that fails.

Oh common those would be great for running to the store for a pack of smokes, instead of driving down the street. Or even hopping over a few neighbors houses to go visit a friend up the street.

That one looks even less safe.

If I ever want a helicopter, I'm just gonna buy one off the Russians.

There is a show here in England called "james mays big ideas" and the OPs helicopter was covered well in one show.
