    Right? Checking Zillow in my area I'd rather pick up this 3500 sq.ft. bomb of a house and pick up a used M3 for less than that ugly thing that most certainly will kill you.

    It looks like a gyrocopter. Very simple design that works in theory similar to a powered paraglider. The forward momentum the rear motor provides pushes the thing through the air, turns the free spinning rotors creating lift.
    Just like this


    Gyrocopters can be simple to design


    But have been known to crash.



    Luckily they can be made on a completely controllable smaller scale for about $20!



    So save yourself $500,000 and go pick up some blue board. Thats basically what I'm getting at here.

    It is in fact a gyroplane, not a helicopter.
