Hi,

consider a "direct lift device",it was designed by Giuseppe P. Ottino and George A. Wyllie in 1909.

It's a kewl find, but should it belong here? it isnt a rotorcraft... maybe the general aerospace section ?

this type of design is called a cyclogyro, basically it generates lift with horizontal rotating wings/other lifting surfaces.

Any direct lift consider a VTOL.

Agreed with Leela, cyclogyros aren't technically rotorcraft (despite being a VTOL design), therefore are more appropriate in general aviation and aerospace. It's a nice find though, Hesham, thank you!
