If you’re like me you’ve had that itch at one time or another to hover high in the high sky. If you’ve got $60,000 that itch can now be scratched. Japanese inventor Gennai Yanagisawa has built a 165-lb helicopter, which might be the world’s smallest. It’s small in foot print too since it doesn’t utilize a rear rotator blade, and instead opts for a dual blade setup which counters the spinning effect. The first demonstration flight will occur May 25th in Vinci, Italy to pay homage to da Vinci.
