Arnold “Terminator” Schwarzenegger is far too much fun, but the Governator really has very little to do with the world’s smallest co-axial helicopter. I just couldn’t help myself with the lame quote.
What you see here is the GEN H-4, a single-passenger helicopter with two sets of chopper-ness spinning above the head of the guy giving the thumbs up. Power comes by way of four GEN125 engines, producing a total of about 40 horsepower at 6800-7500rpm. If you happen to hit a bit of a snag, the shock absorbent aluminum frame should keep you reasonably safe too.
Without the passenger, the GEN H-4 co-axial helicopter weighs a mere 155 pounds. It can reach a maximum cruising speed of 55mph, so you can fly right over rush hour traffic. Priced at $35,000, the GEN H-4 costs about the same as an entry-level luxury car… except it can fly.
