Is it contra-rotating rotors like the KA-50?

it has intermeshing rotors, like US Kaman K-MAX, not the USSR Kamov ^^

they say intermeshing rotors give more stability and effective lift.

true, that's why they are not in widespread use. but they really look novel, love it. isn't it weird though, 2 different company, very similar names, both specialize in strange rotor concepts ^^.
