I doubt that the first inverted hover of a full size will be a military or commercial heli. They do not have a need to develop the technology.

I think it will be an experimental/home built where the weights and dimensions are smaller.
Most of the home built helies have fully symmetrical blades that are rated for right or left hand rotation, this means the they are stressed to handle upright or inverted flight. Now all it needs is someone with enough money and balls to build it and do it.
