Sikorsky S-97 Raider

Test flight and static close-up vid. 6.25.19 at Jupiter, Florida.

Has coaxial main rotors and a pusher prop at the back. Should go fast.

From the Wikipedia: “...the S-97 was formally launched on 20 October 2010. It was intended as a contender for a United States Army's requirement to replace the Bell OH-58D Kiowa Warrior.[5] Other military roles are possible,[5] the U.S. Special Operations Command having expressed interest in the S-97 as a replacement for the MH-6 Little Bird,[8][9] and the possibility of adapting it for civilian applications also exists.[8]”
