RotorWay Javelin Personal Helicopter [1964]

B.J. Schramm

Designed and built by the founder of The RotorWay Helicopter Manufacturing Company, B. J. Schramm, the Javelin represented one of the first readily available helicopter kits targeted towards the personal, sport-flying market. The Javelin was refined into a production model (the Scorpion) which had a two-blade rotor system, weighed under 600kg, housed only a single person,  and had a projected price at under $10 000 USD which was eventually compromised by inflation.
