Watch an eVTOL Buzz Through the Woods In an Adrenaline-Pumping Adventure
There is a new ready-to-fly, DIY vehicle on the market: Jetson One is a single-person, DIY eVTOL with eight motors that can fly and land anywhere. Although the price is high, if you are a flying fanatic, this personal eVTOL is unquestionably less expensive than purchasing a plane. And the nicest thing is that there is no requirement for a runway.
Jetson One is a 190-pound (86-kg) eVTOL that measures 9.3 x 7.8 x 3.3 feet (2840 x 2400 x 1030 mm) in flight and folds neatly into a three-foot package for storage. The body of the vehicle is built of carbon and aluminum fiber, and it is driven by eight strong electric motors arranged co-axially on four arms. The overall power output of these motors is 88 kW, however, the company limits the flight speed to 63 mph (103 km/h) using software. The flight controls are basic, with a throttle lever and a three-axis joystick, so you can learn to fly it quickly.
If you're interested in seeing the vehicle in action, make sure you watch the video embedded above, and as always, enjoy.
