It's rotorcraft, not helicopter.

#1 Ah, I remember this one... :)

430 km/h (260mph) for an helicopter is not bad...
But its look... :(

Still pretty much the same, seen those "wings" before actually, a lot longer ago even.

Would be nice to see some groundbreaking flight designs... designs of the FUTURE! muhahaha

Doesn't need long wings like airplane, has vertical takeoff and landing and high horizontal speed, it's the best of both worlds. Why isn't this more common? It's perfect for individual transportation (aka, the flying car).

The pilot and passengers will need to be careful when getting in and out of this beast the propellors look dangerously close to the doors.

Ya this is a nice invention its speed would be great for rescue helicopters but i don't think they could use it for that because the propellers are really close the the doors... but still a great step forward, maybe take a look back at the drawing board!

Good to see this engine in action, but I expect more numbers etcetera in a documentary, we see what it does, not why nor how. Still impressive.

And what if, one of the 3 engine fails? To me, it looks more lake airplane then helicopter. I didn't see the vertical airborne or hovering. Sorry if my English is bad.

#13, You see it hovering at the very beginning of the video. And it only has two engines. The props on the wingstubs and the main rotor are all driven by a pair of turbo-shaft engines. If one should fail, the 2nd has enough power to keep it from just falling out of the sky.

#12 Yeah, not so much a documentary as a corporate commercial.

#10, #11, It is a prototype, proof of concept model to find ways to solve the problems that happen to helicopter rotors at high speed.

Make the wings a bit bigger and put some flaps n ailerons on then and give it a rudder you could probably do away with the top rotor altogether >:)

Reminds me of the Lockheed AH-56 in the 70's, one of the first helicopters to use a propulsive propeller.More ugly though, and nowhere near as good as airwolf #1 :)

Looks more like a plane than a chopper. :P It's a hybrid.
