“ Someone asked the master about the principles of mounting to dangerous heights and traveling into the vast inane. The Master said, "Some have made flying cars with wood from the inner part of the jujube tree, using ox-leather [straps] fastened to returning blades so as to set the machine in motion." ”
Leonardo da Vinci conceived a machine that could be described as an "aerial screw". He wrote that he made small flying models  but could not stop the rotor from making the whole craft rotate. Later machines would more closely resemble the ancient bamboo flying top, with spinning wings rather than screws.
Whoda thunk it a? Two-timing chopper!

The truly disgusting thing about this is that it was a MALE helicopter.
