There's a couple of those that fly past our beach place on occasion. I think regulation keeps them dangerously low here, but these ones clatter past over the sand bars at 12-20 ft, under tree top level. One similar to that, other looks like a flying bedstead!

No N-number, surely that's not under 254 lbs?

Not U.S. Registry....The Up designation is Kazakhstan.

Chuck, I think they're talking about the counter-rotating floater in the first post, not the gyrocopter...

Looks almost like the Carolina Hurricanes logo on the tail.

I'm still partial to these for some suicidal reason....

A Bugatti is worth BIG money now and long into the future. The personal helo is just a cheap thrill by comparison.

For the open casket.

Braam, that "floater" was designed in West Virginia and is currently being marketed and built by a feller in Virginia, down near Norfolk. Personally, I have had dealings with him that turned out less than satisfactory. We had know each other for a couple of years, asked me to get involved in the project, doing some design work.....then money got tight, and I was let go without so much as a cuppa coffee and a "sorry".....never saw a dime from it. It was another project initially put together by a couple of brothers in a barn, project taken over and made into something workable after a helluva lot of redesign.
