This is my first helicopter on KerbalX. Hope you’ll enjoy it.
A lot of rotors exploded without saying why they exploded
A lot of rotors unexpectedly escaped their test stand and flew on their own
A lot of blades speeding in opposite directions crashed into each other
A lot of parts had parkinson disease
Some test stands were eaten by the Kraken
A few parts melted in cargo bay while trying to shield the engine and parts of the rotor from drag
And sometimes Kerbal were trying to figure out why an helicopter doesn’t fly when the rotor is pushing the helicopter toward the ground
But finally they bring you… this !!!

Performance

Top speed: 300 m/s
Range: 300 km
Rotor lift: 79 t (47 t additional payload)

The rotor is very stable and can hold up to 15g
Can also do barrel rolls and loopings
Relatively easy to fly for a ksp helicopter
Contra-rotating rotors
Can glide and land when out of fuel, even in water

It’s possible to break the sound barrier with this helicopter but you have to remove all the drop tanks, the ladder, the front light and the one under the helicopter. Then accelerate and climb to about 5000m. You should be able to reach about 300m/s in level flight then dive a little and you should reach Mach 1 but just barely.
