Whoever buys this is going to HAVE to be rich. Yeah ten G's seems low for a helicopter, but its a homebuilt kit. Your gonna have to invest serious money to be able to fly this thing again.

I would say lots! Then you need to get licensed, get inspected by NTSB, then FAA and have to keep it at designated airport, and blah blah blah

Ha! Yea right. I saw one the other day fly over my house, when I heard it I hit the ground cause I seriously thought it was gonna crash. It was that loud. Something was definitely off with it.

Im serious. hombuilts and experimentals are probably the safest types of aircraft. They are regulated and tested like no other. Its the pilots that make them crash. Trust me on this I build Single engine planes lol

Tell that to the person flying the homebuilt above my house! I'm pretty sure he was flying the death trap at an illegal height.
