    I was involved with a comms board for a gyrocopter. As part of the reward I was taken on a flight. It was like riding a Harley Davidson but a bit noisier! The top rotor was turned by an electric motor then the propulsion propeller lifted us up after about ten meters, then the power was removed from top rotor. The top blades acted as wings and turned by the force of the air going past them.
    I was just wondering if in a RC model situation, if dual props were used for lift, the propulsion prop used for forward speed, one might have a more versatile machine that a drone or plane?
