This twin seat, twin engined helicopter made its maiden flight during the summer of 1962.
With a weight of 300 kg an rotor diameter of 6.90m, it was powered by two laterally mounted
motorbike engines of 50 hp each. Series production with two 100 hp engines was planned,
but never came to fruition. Mentioned in Flight 1962 (http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1962/1962%20-%200896.html)
photo and data are from "Der Flieger", October 1963.
