Reverse engineered Nigerian helicopter manufacturer announced

https://nationalaccordnewspaper.com/...o-launch-soon/

If it wasn't in the paper, you might have thought someone had made it up! I can just see the emails now, offering you a brand new S92 for USD 20,000, or an AW101 for 10,000 Euros. This is potentially as big a breakthrough as the Wright Brothers first flight, or even the creation of the helicopter itself.

Now there is a deal!

I saw lots of reverse engineering in Nigeria over the years I spent there.

Maybe this is financed by that Nigerian prince who had US $29 million to give away?

They choose the Dynali as it is delivered as a kit.
Reverse engineering is then easy by reading the building manual backwards!

No, that's my money, he wrote me a letter, its a long lost inheritance. I sent my bank details but the money hasn't shown up yet, I am sure it will though.

I dont get it, if Dynali "is on board" as a partner as the article states, why do you need to buy and copy this horrendous looking thing?
