These guys have NOTHING FOR SALE kit, plans or otherwise. The single biggest issue is it weighs over 1,500lbs and has more than two seats. Those items run against most amateur built chopper laws on most of the planet. This is why they went to certify it to be a commercial venture. Trouble is they have NO funding to pay the multi million dollar certifacation to to gat a manufacturers certificate. They only have a website with very little info and nothing for sale. Like most helicopter companies listed in this group on a shoe string buget and big big dreams.
