The Austrian engineer, Paul Baumgartl, concerned himself during the Second World War with the design of small single-seat helicopters, in the suburbs of Vienna. It is not certain whether his work was sponsored by the German Government, but his machines were in the same category as those of Nagler-Rolz. Baumgartl's first product was the Heliofly I of 1941, which was little more than a strap-on autogyro glider for sporting use.

Heliofly III was a powered contrarotating blade back-pack helicopter.

I'd recommend looking at the book My Tank Is Fight, Its got info and a (fictional) account of how the Heliofly could have been used in combat.

autogyro for sure.other than that the pilot would be violently spinning counter torque.in order for it to work as a vtol there would have to be two counter rotating propellers.and a small engine.As it is now it is simply a parachute without the mess of fabric and strings.It could be used to drop special forces in but it take a lot of practice to fly .It's hard enough just learning how to fight much less fly.the landing would be very hard also .
Do you have any comments ?
