Portable helicopter
United States Patent 4071206

A basic lightweight helicopter frame is strapped to the body of a pilot and includes vertical side bars interconnected above the pilot's head to rotatably support a bladed rotor assembly and carry a rearwardly extending tail rotor assembly. The lower ends of the side bars carry fuel tanks from which rocket engines at the tips of the rotor blades draw fuel. A control assembly is supported at the upper end of the frame and extends forwardly therefrom for easy access by the pilot. The aircraft includes an attachable landing gear and an attachable pusher blade and engine assembly which can be used when desired.

There's a Youtube video of such a device. He only goes a few feet up.
Funny but I thought that any working helicopter is self-portable.

It's neat, it's sweet, but no pusher prop.
Not the same video I saw before, but the same machine. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2W3gamijezc)
