Eurocopter X3

Video of the new Eurocopter X3, must say i'm very interested to see how well this is received the aerospace community.
I can imagine search and rescue or air ambulance services being very interested in this, as long the the prop's don't limit access to the doors too much

I don't think it would be practical for S&R - the props seem to be very close to the door and if a winch was swaying in the wind there could be a very nasty accident.
