I'm not a pilot but have been lucky enough to fly in Mi-24 Hind, Mi-2, Mi-17, Lynx HAS3, Gliders, GA
Thanks for posting those photos - some interesting unfamiliar designs to me.

The grey Xenon marked RA-1555G looks like a "Xenon XL" as it has the extra long thin rear window too- the three seater version.

Cheers

These are great pictures thanks. It is good to see some new designs .

I find the first picture of the Gyro crop sprayer interesting. It would be nice to know how it compares to a fixed wing. It is probably slower than a plane , but would be quicker in the turns and maneuverability would be better.

It would be good to hear from a pilot who has flown both.

The co-axial helicopter is one of the "cleanest" designs ever.

Yes, Steve, it is a 3seater.

This is a clear advantage of Xenon against any competition.
No other company offers at the moment such proven machine,
of this cabin size and weight to load ratio.

The Russian Ohotnik (Hunter) was a good try, but to no significant avail...

There is obviously a market for such solution in Russia,
and no formal (legal) obstacles.

Cheers
