Hey, these guys are just down the road but I'd never heard of them.
The stuff they claim to be working on looks incredible.

Anyone ever heard of these guys? The owner is a former politician in
NZ - not exactlly a ringing endorsement!

This pops up from time to time.. I haven't seen a single change to
their web site in probably 2 years... Do they have any actual
helicopters or just 3D CAD representations of helicopters?


Looks like the only thing they've really built is a trailer.

Hence my scepticism. Although googling them finds other articles that
suggest they are flying things, and one shows a guy holding a tail
rotor gearbox they claim to have built.

But it would all look a lot better of there was some evidence that
it's not all an elaborate facade.

Presumably 2 years ago they weren't talking about the DeltaHawk diesel
engines?

They're in the UK Sunday Times today - a piece about a remote controlled
heli they are developing for lifting injured climbers off Mt Everest.
