Haraka,

No need for apologies. Here's a flying machine that I didn't know about until yesterday.

Is that the little Mil helicopter from around 1990? MI-34 or something? Remember one at Farnborough.

It certainly does have features reminiscent of all three manufacturers. The gear looks like it is off a Jet Ranger.

Not Chinese.

All right - a clue for dook. You can build one.

PS If you need a clew, go to a sailmaker.
