...at least, I assume that's what ESTOL stands for.

Hoohah! A Hercules takes off with what looks like zero runway roll (at 1:07).

that is amazing, but wouldn't helicopters solve most problems involving ESTOL?

It doesn't always work (at 2:12) as intended.

Depends on the conditions. Helicopters are bad at high altitudes, in hot and heavy conditions, etc.

Replacing the wings after landing seems expensive though.

He could probably land in my pasture but we would have a lot of BBQ'd steak afterwards.

So, a plane comes in for a landing, screeching to a stop. The copilot turns to the pilot and says, "Wow Captain, that sure was a short runway!" And the pilot says, "Yeah, but look how wide it is!"
