The preflight might prove interesting, as well...
Interesting, but I'm not sure what the net result is of adding complexity to the main rotor to eliminate the complexity of the tailrotor.
True, but on the other hand it seems to me there is a trade there -- you increase the complexity of the main rotor but eliminate the complexity of the tail rotor (transmission, gear box, pitch change, chip detector, etc.).
And you could throw stuff out the doors without worrying about getting it caught in the tail rotor
There's an airplane looking craft out there that goes down the RWY over 55 MPH with flapping wings... very close to lift off on video I saw on TV.
I think there's some $ award out there to be had for flapping wing flight.
Personally I like NOTAR.
