Reminds me of a one man, garage built helicopter that a few friends put together. The test pilot flew in 'Nam, so after a few beers he was ready to give it a try. They used the engine out of a Volkswagen, as I remember it.I suppose you could say that the thing flew. Just not very high, and not very far. The engine kept stalling out and without an engine the helicopter won't fly well.
A HELICOPTER???Anybody that can fab up the makings for a whirly bird is a genius. You ever see how those rotorheads work? And - a VW engine?? If there is a better power plant in that class in the world I can't think of it... MAYBE the Subies ... but I would rather have the VW myself.
