Generally, in my opinion a vehicle like ospery is resembling an aircraft charateristic more than a helicopter.
From the flight physics perspective, ospery is behaving "completely" like an aircraft in most of its flight time (cruise phase), while at take-off and landing, the vehicle is operating in a "similar" manner to a helicopter. For example, most of helicopters use their tail rotor for providing directional contol, while ospery does not have any tail rotor. A helicopter uses its primary rotors for vertival, longitudinal and lateral movements, while ospery uses them only for the vertical and longitudinal motions. For this reason, it seems different skills than flying a helicopter are required to be able to land an ospery.
Generally, I think the capability of landing or taking off vertically would not essentially make it a helicopter, as nobody considers the F-35B (the USMC version) as a helicopter. But, I acknowledge that the rotors may be misleading in the ospery case.
