GEN H-4 Personal Helicopter

It’s nearing the end of 2005 and we still don’t have any flying cars like we were promised, but the GEN H-4 personal helicopter looks promising (and dangerous). Here it is in the air, and I might be crazy, but it looks to be controlled by weight-shift (even more photos).

OhGizmo says it sells for about $31,000. Gizmodo claims it drives its counter-rotating rotors with an eight-horsepower, 125cc engine. And Odd things from Japan wonders if “this is the nearest thing on Earth to ‘Takekoputa.’”

  3. Your facts are wrong. It has FOUR engines of (10hp) 125 CC, not one. Two were insufficient for lift. Three were adequate and a Fourth for safety, allowing one complete engine failure. Total 40HP

    I’d like to know when it actually goes into production? It’s been 10 years (1997) already!

    How hard is it to produce these things? A bunch of gears, precast blades, 4 light engines and a clutch. They look simple enough, what’s the delay? They may be developing a safety chute. I say screw that. Wear a chute and jump out! Get er done man!
