The only ramjet helicopters from Poland I know are

In a jet flap rotor, the lift of the blades is controlled by bleed air, which can
be ejected through slots along the blade length. So the lift ratio between hte
advancing and retreating blade can be improved.
At least, that's what I thought, I understould ... ???

Pics and a text about the 1965 Lift System LS-3, which had an accident on Sep. 10 of that year and probably never flew again after that.

Noteworthy is the fact that this very original-looking machine had the names of R. Bendix and M. Jensen associated to its inception.
