I actually went and saw this thing at the Castle Museum this weekend. I didnt realize it from the photo but it actually has two main rotors. They are angled out left and right from the centerline and the blades intermesh. Very queer. Lots of rudder surface too and a huge exhaust pipe.

Are the flight controls on this copter the same as on a regular chopper? This thing seems like it would break enough of the traditional rules that a whole new system of flight controls would be necessary. I cant imagine what they would be though.
