The vast majority of Helis don't run symmetrical airfoils on the rotor blades, so negative pitch won't be as beneficial as you may think.

Technically, it's more than possible. However, the statement "awesome power to weight ratio" is the tricky part. It's a very difficult engineering problem to develop a power source for full scale helicopters that would give it a comparable power to weight ratio that we find in RC helis. Chasing power to weight ratios is a game of diminishing returns......

Still, it would more than cool of course!!!
