Meet the Volocopter VC200: a personal multicopter designed to provide pilots with a safe flight experience. The pilot simply has to use a joystick to change direction. As the developers explain, vertical takeoff and landing are easier to master using this.
The above video shows the first manned flight with the Volocopter VC200. Such a solution could prove useful for air taxi services in the future. What do you think? Are you impressed?
