Re: No Auto-rotation
You'd have to have more balls than sense to take that thing up over one hundred feet. It should be required to have a built-in parachute that you can use if this thing fails. At least with a motorcycle, if the engine quits, usually it doesn't mean you are gonna die.

Dragonfly wing
I wish some think-tank would figure out how to allow humans to fly with dragonfly type wings. You ever watch a dragonfly. Very cool indeed. Replace the two rotors on a CH46 Sea Knight with dragonfly wings. That baby would be something to see. Forward-sideways-backwards-straight up, no problem.

Live to tell about it.
Yes I have lived through an auto-rotation. I was a heli-attack foreman when I fought forest fires....All I remember is feeling that my back had just compressed a couple of inches..Helicopter pilots swear they would rather be in chopper than a fixed aircraft after that I believed them..

I'll take a TARDIS and be done with this time and space altogether. ;-)

A couple of hits of good acid and you're there.

Re: Not a Motorcycle, But...
I can see from the video that I'd want a set of clip-ons to lower the handlebars to a more "aggressive" sport position . . .

I just couldn't resist.

Re: Live to tell about it.
problem is this thing can not auto-rotate!

I think they offer a ballistic parachute.

As to Helicopters vs fixed wing.

Helicopters are a collection of spare parts flying in loose formation.

Just kidding... Sort of.

Re: No Auto-rotation
How about a back packed parachute. Could you jump this thing without those blades slicing you like an overripe cantaloupe?
