Austrian helicopters do not (yet) have a specific topic and are to be found in the Austrian aircraft topic for now:

An autogyro, not a helicopter !
... and sometimes you'll find the designation "TRS-3", because three "1" can be read as a roman 3 ....
And we shouldn't forget Stingrays great list !

Thank you, Maveric ! Maybe interesting:
Your post show the TRS.1 with the registration D-HOLY, whereas the aircraft in the Hubschraubermuseum Bückeburg
(helicopter museum Bückeburg) is registered as D-HOKY (photo via http://www.bredow-web.de/Hubschrauber/Krauss_Autogiro_TRS1_EN/krauss_autogiro_trs1_en.html)
It is said, that just one example was built, but why should the very accurate guys from the museum should have
changed the reg ? Perhaps there were two aircraft, after all ?

Just a minor nit: I think Maveric's photos show D-HOCY.  The apparent "L" in "D-HOLY" is actually a rather square "C" with glare hiding the top section of the letter. 

There's another online picture saying that "D-HOKY" is indeed a mistake, and that this aircraft is actually D-HOCY as well.
