Hesham, "Nepszabadsag" is the name of a Hungarian newspaper reporting about the helicopter prototype, not the name of the designer or aircraft itself.
 
Lousy quality, but an interesting cutaway view of the 1957 Bodo Frankocopter:

65.000 DM? A quick search tells me that the average German yearly income in 1958 was 5330 DM. That is a lot of money for a flying box of questionable safety.
