"Announced last September, the Passenger Drone looks a bit like a two-seat tandem gyrocopter but seems further along in development than most contenders. It’s built from carbon fibre composites, uses 16 electric rotors to get airborne and can also be flown manually with a joystick. To accompany the announcement, its makers released videos which show the craft already completing manned test flights, where it was flown autonomously, joystick operated, and by remote control.
The makers claim a top speed of 70 km/h, a 20-minute endurance and best of all, a 25-minute charge time which makes this currently one of the more practical flying cars. No prices have been announced as yet, but have your wallet ready for this one."
