Super cool. I wonder if it has the capability to auto rotate to safety if the gas runs out or something.

Looks pretty cool, actually. I think I`d be kind of nervous about high power lines, though.

If you check out AceCraft`s Website, you will see that it uses 4, 10hp engines. But then scroll down to "Possible Future Developments" and it says "15 Horsepower Engines (for American market)"

HAhahaha

I`m just glad we aren`t being left out.

@Thelonius: "How does that thing stabilize from rotational momentum?"

It has counter-rotating blades.

hey it`s a good idea, why invent something new when you can reinvent something else that already works?

How does that thing stabilize from rotational momentum? Also, that`s a nice decapitation machine for student drivers.

Until you hit a wind current and end up in the power lines. Then you`re fried.

@dm2754 and @briandarf

This doesn`t look like a gyrocopter to me... A gyrocopter needs a powered propeller for forward thrust, while the unpowered rotor that makes it look like a helicopter provides the lift. This is definitely a personal helicopter, and a pretty damn cool one at that.
