Isn't this just a modified (slightly powered rotor) auto-gyro? If that's the case, drop all the "helicopter" talk and call a duck a duck. It's an entirely different class of aircraft that preceded helicopter development. Autogyros seem to be less complex the helos or conventional aircraft with pretty good performance. If they can just find a market for "can't hover, can fly very slow, faster overall than helicopters, but slower than traditional planes" they might be on to something.

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.
