7 PASSENGER DRONES YOU HAVE TO SEE TO BELIEVE
Take a look at these awesome passenger drones that we might be flying in sooner than you think!
FEATURED PASSENGER DRONES ⭐
#7 SureFly At the 2017 Paris Air Show a newcomer showed off its very credible, 2 seat flying car or as we like to call it, Passenger Drone… The 1,100 kg Workhorse Surefly uses an electric quadcopter layout with two contra-rotating propellers on each corner and a range-extending petrol engine, giving it a range of 70 miles and a top speed of 70 mph. The gas engine can then be fueled quickly with petroleum for immediate onward flight.
#6 Ehang184 (Ehong) Dubai’s Road & Transportation Agency plans to launch trips with the first fully-electric autonomous aerial vehicle drone starting late this summer. The Prime Minister of the UAE wants 25% of all passenger trips to be made in driver-less vehicles by 2030. This human-size drone, EHang 184, is made in China and has already flown in Dubai. Its manufacturer, Chinese drone company Ehang, showed off the 184 at last year’s CES in Las Vegas after 100 successful manned test flights. EHang 184 has enough room for a small suitcase and will be controlled through 4G mobile Internet. It is able to carry a single passenger who weighs less than 220 pounds over short distances at 62 miles per hour with a fully-charged battery.
#5 Hoversurf Hoversurf, comes from a Russian company that builds drones. They recently posted a video showing off its latest prototype: the Scorpion-3, a single-seat, electric-powered hoverbike that looks super awesome! The manufacturers say they wanted to combine a motorcycle with quadcopter drone technology to create “an extreme sports instrument.” The electric-borne aircraft is intended for both “amateur and professional navigators,” Hoversurf says. Though don’t expect a motorcycle’s license or even a pilot’s license to authorize you to ride one of these things. The only thing that would, in my opinion, is a willingness to have your legs amputated in the name of extreme sports. The hoverbike uses custom-built software to limit its range and velocity in order to assure a safe ride, the company says. We are wondering tho… Will they put a cage over those blades?
#4 .I.F.O. jetcapsule.com Designed by italian company jet capsule, the I.F.O or ‘identified flying object’ is a proposed two seater drone/copter vehicle. the chassis, composed of a main central capsule cockpit, measures two meters in diameter and is surrounded by a carbon fiber disk with an overall dimension of 4.70 meters.
#3 ProjectZero The AgustaWestland Project Zero is a hybrid tiltrotor/fan-in-wing aircraft. It has been developed by AgustaWestland as a technology demonstrator, and is used to investigate all-electric propulsion and other advanced technologies. It is the world’s first electric tilt-rotor aircraft.
#2. Volocopter The e-volo VC200 Volocopter is a single-place experimental electric multi-rotor helicopter. The e-volo VC-2 (or VC-200) is the second in a series of multi-rotor designs from the German company e-volo. The single-place, 16 motor, all-electric e-volo VC1 “Volocopter” was demonstrated on 21 October 2011.
#1 Airbus Pop Up During the 87th Geneva International Motor Show, Italdesign and Airbus world-premiered Pop.Up, the first modular, fully electric, zero emission concept vehicle system designed to relieve traffic congestion in crowded megacities. Pop.Up envisages a modular system for multi-modal transportation that makes full use of both ground and airspace.
