Bonobo reinvents a military helicopter.... now this is quality journalism

The most complex part to build in a heli is the gearbox and main rotor pitch controllers

That helicopter of his is good enough to be sold to some educational/entertainment/artistic interests, for enough money for him to make a much more serious one.

Actually flight calculations are more complex. How much thrust is needed, pitch angles, hovering speed, power distributions on chopper………otherwise it will be instant death on his first attempt.
It’s much easier to build a aero plane than can fly, than a helicopter. A helicopter doesn’t want to fly.
