PHI Cares ~ PHi Air Medical Membership /Affiliate Program ~ Air Ambulances Transportation with the highest standards of safety and patient care
Wow, an air ambulance service with a membership card. Considering the pricing for medical helicopter evacuations, this actually makes some sense for people in suburban/rural situations, otherwise the transport bill will be out of this world, and sometimes not covered by insurance, thus bankrupting you.

Bell Air Taxi Concept Experience at CES 2018
Pod design for a VTOL air taxi, but absolutely no shots of the pod carrier or propulsion. Likely a multicopter, possibly a tiltrotor.

Uses 4 two stroke engines for endurance, with electric assist motors on the shafts for boost/fine control for navigation. Not quite a series hybrid, and kinda big.

OFM Hyper 330 Ultimate FPV Racing Quadcopter | Only Flying Machines
Interesting tilt mechanism to keep the body level during accelerated forward flight. Is the added weight worth the effort? Might be for keeping the FPV video camera stable and staying aerodynamic, compared to a tilt stance regular quad with compensating video camera gimbal.

Helicopter Could be 'Scout' for Mars Rovers
I would have expected larger rotors, more like one of those human powered helicopters. With the low pressure, you need hugely long rotors.

Zippy, but surprised it isn't a tail sitter. Though if it really carried hard drives, then it really would be a packet copter of sorts. Maybe an update to RFC1149?

Appears to be working on a tilting rotor quadcopter (technical an octocopter since it uses a rotor above and below the motor), allegedly a hybrid base, with power supplied by some sort of engine/generator unit feeding to the four motors.
