Does the bet cover 1-bladed tail rotors? I believe the Hiller Hornet had one, but its main rotor was conventional.

Does it have to be a manned aircraft? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UY38uho9ZdE&feature=player_embedded

I know of at least two more single rotor helicopters that flew.
Ben , tell your buddy he owes you at least $60 by now.
Tell him if he doesn't pay up right away we will find even more single rotor heli's .. :)

look at the first photo....
Bell built an experimental helicopter with one MR blade, the other side had a large counter weight. It was a modified Bell 47.
