In the past few months, we have covered plenty of exciting electric VTOL drones and aircraft here. Volocopter’s VoloConnect also looks pretty impressive. It is a 4-seater eVTOL aircraft with flight speeds of over 1500 mph and range of over 60 miles range. This lift-and-cruise aircraft uses 6 rotors for vertical takeoff and two electric fans with special wings to generate high forward speeds.
As the company explains:
The prototype completed its first flight in May 2022 after just 17 months in the making and performed a few maneuvers for 2 minutes and 14 seconds during its first flight. The prototype has all the planned aerodynamics and performance features of the future commercial product.
