German Flettner 282 Helicopter "Dragon"

Good morning all,

Above has a picture of Germany's WWII "Dragon" helicopter. Also mentioned is the Focke-Angeis Fa-223.

Link is a US site so there are the US helo originals.

Not in article but did not the Soviets have a start - not anything in production; but a start in heliocopters ? I have only sketchy info on the Soviet Mil Mi-1 and do believe its R&D started during WWII.
