Helicopter craftsmanship

"I rate the engineering design and build quality as outstanding.
It would be an injustice to compare this helicopter to existing crop of kit-helicopters. I would rate this craft between a R22 Beta II and the Schweitzer 269C in terms of its weight lifting capacity, performance and cabin size"
