According to Hesham there was a Russian "G-1" single-seat helicopter designed and built in spring of 1961 by Gashulyak Yaroslav with an Irbit two-cylinder motor-cycle engine.

Does anyone have more info?

Found this in my archives titled "Gyropter G.130". Possible typo for "Gyrocopter"?

Speaking of such Unmanned Logistics Air Vehicles, there is also this MULE UAV concept (see attachment) I found at Secret Projects. Also related to the ducted-fan UAV found by BARF is this vehicle by Urban Aeronautics, found by 555...

The German Merckle E98D was an experimental high-speed helicopter project in collaboration with Bolkow in 1960s. (Related development of the SM-67 maybe?)

As to other pioneering efforts of adapting jet propulsion to helicopters, the development of an aircraft by the Jet Helicopters Company in Montreal, Canada should be cited. In this case, the B-36, a single-seater, of approximately 3000 Ib GW was designed and built along the concepts and patents of W. Brzozowski during the 1044-46 time period and was eventually ground tested around the 1050s but, to the best knowledge of these investigators, it was never flown.

Conroy Heli-Guppy*

A modification of the Sikorsky Skycrane, capable of transporting fuselage sections of the new generation of large aircraft, is undergoing evaluation. Design criteria include a payload capability of approximately 18,000 pounds and diameters up to 20 feet. The Skycrane has great versatility and may be readily converted to many uses. It is expected to play a major role in specialized air transportation for the aerospace industry as well as for the construction, petroleum and other industries.

* probably not an official name
