Liteco Hydrogen Peroxide powered helicopter.

Quite the strange bird.......

Powered by Hydrogen Peroxide tip jets on the end of the rotor blades.

If my memory serves me right, they were embroiled in a lawsuit about rotor blades or something like that.

There is a great article about it on Wired.

No Mike, it's not a 'Statson' (Stetson you mean?) but a Fedora, also known as an F-35

Well at least that makes me safe from Mike's gunfire on the SAS server THIS time... Hopefully... Maybe...

That’s correct!

It was also known as the “Flying Ginny”.

Sniperton, you're up!

Nope quite alright.   I'm looking at the engine on the counter-rotating micro 'copter and it looks like an old Wisconsin V4 industrial engine?

Nice catch, yes indeed, that's the F-35 and indeed the "a" is a typo.
Quest solved.

Cheers!

Ah it's an old L-head Conti A40.  Only 40 h.p. and it was able to go 100 mph?  Is this possible?

 The AS315 Lama has a 450 shaft hp turbine and can only just make about 100-110 knots forward.
