Hover Practice: Eastern European Style!.
A two stroke powered single seat helicopter performing some home style hover practice (not advised - don't try this, get proper training).
While we love seeing some of the engineering marvels that come out of Europe, especially the eastern sector, there is much to be said for their value on life as seen here in these hover training scenarios. While we do not encourage these practices, many have indeed learnt and taught themselves this way but when you land at the local airport and are asked for your "pilots licence", don't expect a favorable reception.

It seems these designs can't keep away from Russian type military helicopter look-a-likes. Wheeled undercarriage and similar lines though with a much more appealing look than some of the rustic home built helicopter designs. Two stroke powered, light and simple.

A Rotorway Scorpion 2 seat helicopter with an unusual Volkswagon (VW) engine installation that seems to incorporate the original gearbox/diff/drive assembly and appears to be rotated 90 degrees to get the output shaft vertical.
