An experimental TL–6 design. CAR is a Coaxial Rotor system, where there are two sets of rotors (one above another) providing lift, but rotating in opposite directions to cancel torque. This is a large (37kg) backpack consisting of a small, but powerful, gas engine, a 20 minute fuel supply, and the CAR rotors mounted about .7m above the head of the pilot. Top speed is 240kph, with a ceiling around 2000m.

This is a build of a Backpack Helicopter.
