You're joking right?

The point is to see if it can be done, that's it.

For an Adventure Rider you lack a sense of adventure :lol3

200 pounds lifted 8.7feet high by a one horsepower engine, if that is not a accomplishment I don't know what is..

Typical human output is actually less than half a horsepower. Elite athletes can output ~400 W and higher for extended periods, but most, let's say, average athletes can only do 300-325 W.

They need to gear it a little different, and put cunnards on the rotor tips.

What they really need for it is a motor off of a 1972 Yamaha Mini Enduro...then they could fly it to the Moon.
