Description Although not a helicopter, the AMV-211 is a VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) airplane. The performance of this aircraft should easily overcome the speed and range limits that are inherent in the design of a helicopter, mainly due to their upward thrust vector.

We already have convertiplanes, where the wing propellers are turned 90 degrees between take-off/landing and forward flight. This concept has proved to be very difficult to realize, and it took Bell and Boeing 20 years to develop the V-22 Osprey.

The AMV-211 is different, however. Here, it is not the propeller that is changing angle but the fuselage. Moreover, propulsion is not achieved with wing propellers, but with a large ducted fan that is driven by a turbine engine. A trust-vectoring device, using the thrust vector of the turbine engine outlet, counteracts the torque generated by the fan.

The driving force behind this enterprise is Attila Melkuti, the initiator of the project. The AMV-211 is still in the prototype phase (2013), and AMV is looking for investors.

Have a look at the manufacturers link http://www.amvaircraft.com/

I don't think you can actualy buy one. They are looking for investers though.
