Funny these always exist as computer renderings or sitting on the ground.

Any graphics guy can create a beauty in this way. If you want to design a do-able, viable light, 2-seater, post your transmission and powerplant details. THAT'S WHAT MAKES A HELICOPTER. Not a snazzy fuselage cartoon or mockup.

No, not really... San Diego and San Fransisco are not helicopter friendly.
I look at aircraft as tools each has a different use for me.

When they will not let you land at your house, office, friends homes, and 80% of the land around here there is not much point in flying from airport to airport in an aircraft that cost more to buy and fly than my little piper 180 that flies faster and for less money while carrying four 225lb folks and full fuel for 6 hours from airport to airport just fine.

However one of my daughters have moved to Indiana and I am looking for a home/land by them I can trade for land so maybe in my future if I can find a use for this great tool.

I wanted to know to consider how many of them may sell the lower the price the more units they should sell, 80K is a good price for a new two-place they should do well.

That is one of the most visually appealing helicopters I have ever seen outside of the Commanche.
Don't know if it will fly as well as it looks, but based on its looks it will attract a whole lot lof attention.

Wow,

If it really does have an IO-360 Lycoming that will be a great choice. Plenty of torque and proven helicopter service. As long as the cost is less than a good used 269 this will be a winner.

It is a very nice heli but can be improved by reducing the width of the pillars.
Same issue on the Helicycle.

I agree. It really should all be transparent through that area. That is my biggest complaint with the Helicycle.
