    In my country India, every 15 minutes a farmer is committing suicide while our government is busy helping crony capitalists. Good to see this positive story from our neighbouring country. Peace.

    These are autogyros, not helicopters. There is no engine rotating the main blades. Also it cannot vertically take off. It is impressive he designed and build one from scratch but these are not fixed wing airplanes or helicopters.
