Ok I'm at it again:
pretty sure the Miyazaki lupine isnt an autogyro. Looks more like a ramjet powered helicopter, hence the tubey looking things on the tips of the blade. Only other reason to put stuff at the ends is to add mass for tip speed control with abrupt maneuvers.

Looking at it again, I see control levers for the hub. Definitely a 'chopper

Never too much Dune. Not a john carter fan
