it's a really cool concept but safety would be a major concern and these flying machines would have to be regulated by the FAA of course. 

In the event of an engine failure it would seem the pilot would be really out of luck since I can't see how that thing would glide like a fixed wing aircraft or auto rotate like a helicopter.


I sure hope the idea will be developed further.

Problem solved for engine failure.  Do like several of the small airplanes, install a parachute.  May land in a tree top but won't hit the ground like a brick.  And/or you could have the operator wear a flying squirrel outfit and he could glide to the ground.
