World's First Manned Flight with an Electric Multicopter

pin
Fascinating! Thomas Senkel of e-volo made the first manned flight with an electric multicopter (VTOL), the so called volocopter VC1, at an airstrip in the southwest of Germany.

The flight lasted 90 seconds, after which the constructor and test pilot stated: "The flight characteristics are good natured. Without any steering input it would just hover there on the spot". This could be the future of aviation, piloting a vehicle as easy as a car." Could you imagine having your own one person helicopter that would be as easy as piloting a car!?!? We're in!
