Today (Feb 6), EHANG announced that the EHANG 184 Autonomous Aerial Vehicle has achieved a series of manned flight tests carrying one and two passengers, including EHANG CEO and all executives, as well as many Guangzhou government officials.
Ag dammit. Now I want one. (Should go a long way in intimidating and chasing away those pesky DJI plastickies flying over the neighbourhood) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Behind every angry woman is a man who has absolutely no idea what he did wrong.

No you don't. Three unexplained crashes due to "software issues" so I would rather not thanks.
