The Hélica by Marcel LEYAT did exist and info maybe found at http://www.helica.info/modele.htm

Voie Libre, the French model railroad magazine, had a two part article and plans on how to build one.
The magazine is available in English in paper and digital form.

Info at:

Is that a headlight on the front of the prop?

If you can get your hands on one of those RC gasoline powered motors I'll bet you could really get that critter to fly!

As you can see here ( it is just one of several videos you can find ) control isn't that bad. This contraption has been inspired by the 'Flyers' offered by LGB some 20 years ago.
