As said by the narator.
French naturalist Claude Launoy think the concept and François Bienvenu built it. A demonstration flight to the French Royal Academy of Sciences was operated on 28 of April 1783.

Mikhail Lomonosov's Coaxial Rotor

In July 1754, Russian Mikhail Lomonosov developed a model of a small machine with a coaxial rotor and demonstrated it to the Russian Academy of Sciences. Unable to fly but lift up with the help of a counterweight.

Yakovlev EG

In December 1947, the Yakovlev EG (or Izdeliye Sh) an experimental aircraft with coaxial rotors made its first flight. The program was closed in 1948 both because of some technical problems and due to the appearance of a more successful model of light helicopter, the Mil Mi-1.

Paul Cornu Helicopter

13 November 1907 : the first successful helicopter to lift off by its only power and rotor. Two 20-foot (6-meter) counter-rotating rotors driven by a 24-hp (18-kW) Antoinette engine lifted its inventor to about five feet (1.5 meters) and remained aloft one minute. Other source gives only one foot (30 cm) of freee space under the wheels.

Igor Sikorsky Helicopter

Two designs in 1909 and 1910. Only the second one was tested and was half a success : it could lift its own weight but couldn't take off with a pilot.
