Duck Billed Helicopter Saves Lifes

The H1 ‘Fugu’ by Matt Bassett is a purpose built helicopter targeted at disaster relief. It has been rationalized and rethought to optimize space with a minimal yet flexible package layout, thus allowing maximum efficiency and smaller required landing areas. To put it in perspective, it carries a similar sized load to a Chinook, and is 40 feet shorter, largely due to the coaxial rotor arrangement. The intelligent Skid system is made of individual feet, which each house a sensor which enables it to negotiate uneven terrain, allowing for access to areas that would traditionally be deemed inaccessible. Surely even Daniel Simon would be impressed by this effort.
