The Etienne Oelimichen No.6 of 1935 was a helicopter with a 353 cu.ft balloon mounted above to assure stability. It also had a quad rotor and quad gear.
 
On 2 March 1935 Oelimichen flew the craft for 5 minutes in the large dirigible hanger at Orly, demonstrating its stability.
The French Musee de l’Air possesses five of Etienne Oelimichen’s experimental helicopters developed from 1920 through 1938. In 1965 only his sixth project of 1935 was on display.
