This design for the ‘Hummel’ folding helicopter is by designer Daniel Kocyba. It’s a two-seater that’s suited for emergency operations and can fold flat for easy storage between uses.

‘Hummel’ means bumblebee, and this helicopter’s design and color scheme certainly brings visions of winged summer stingers. Check out some more innovative helicopters below.
