I think I saw this on the cover of Popular Science about 70 years ago.



I guess they finally worked the bugs out.

You have to admit that with a bunch of people flying these gizmos around, that motorcycling would start to look like a safe mode of travel.

Excellent innovative solution. Yes counter rotating rotor helicopters are nothing new. However, by keeping it simple with fixed pitch blade (no collective) and unique yaw contol using a electric motor to create differential rotor torque (no rudder via tail rotor pitch control needed) they have created a different and inovative way to contol a helicopter. Igor would be proud and I suspect intriqued. For all those that racists out there that say Japan Inc. is not creative this is certainly evidence to the contary. For us fixed winged pilots who have tried our hands at the more numerous flight controls of a helicopter this an interesting simplified alternative and could be used for larger applications. Excellent news tidbit MO.. thanks.
