The Electrik news site reports that interested purchasers can now buy a single-seat electric helicopter for US78,000 plus USD595 shipping costs.
According to Electrick: ”Weighing just 110 kilograms (242 pounds), it has a payload capacity of up to 100 kilograms (220 pounds). That’s enough for me and my dog to soar through the skies, though there’s a chance that would count as animal cruelty. It’s probably best to keep this as a one-passenger affair. The aircraft runs on a 24s battery system, meaning around 88 volts flow through those motors. That’s a lot of RC lipo batteries underneath your rear end. There’s no word on capacity, but the sales page says you only get a maximum flight time of 30 minutes. So if I were you, I’d make it count.”
