XPENG reports successful first flight of its newly configured eVTOL

XPENG AEROHT has released a video of a flight of its eVTOL flying car. According to the company: “Designed for both air flight and road driving, the flying car conveniently features a sleek rotor fold-away system for seamless conversation between driving and flying. It is equipped with a new flight control system equipped with fault-tolerant control functions and a dual-engine backup system to ensure safety.

“Optimized from last year’s horizontal dual-rotor structure to a new distributed multi-rotor configuration, the overall system design complexity has also been reduced to further enhance flight safety and reliability. The test vehicle of the new flying car has successfully completed its maiden flight as well as multiple single-motor failure tests.

“In driving mode, it is comparable with any conventional cars in terms of functionality and measurement. In flight mode, the flying car is piloted using the steering wheel and the right-hand gear lever as controls to move forward and backward, make turns, ascend, hover and descend. Subject to laws and regulations for the low-altitude airspace, it can take off and land vertically, and fly over traffic congestion, obstacles and rivers to meet a new host of short-distance mobility needs.”
