33 Hot Helicopters

From Helicopter-Humvee Hybrids to Dragonfly Helicopters

— November 15, 2010 — Autos
I am admittedly terrified of airplanes, but I would willingly take a ride in any of these hot helicopters any day. When it comes to aerial design innovation, the best place to look is the helicopter hangar.

Implications - The aviation industry is one that has changed the face of tourism. Helicopters are one of many innovations that have taken travel from the ground to the air, and the design possibilities are infinite for these incredible flying devices.

From DARPA-designed Humvee-helicopters to DIY wooden helicopters, you'll find a ton of innovative and exciting helicopter designs when you click through this list.
