This emission-free, environmentally friendly helicopter may be the rotorcraft of the future! Designed by German company e-Volo, it has 18 electric motors and can carry two people. After its ground-breaking test flights, the e-Volo managing director commented, “Rich and incredibly quiet sound, absolutely no noticeable vibrations in the flight, convincing structure with a great, new spring strut landing gear, and an extremely calm rotor plane.” The Volocopter should be commercially available in a few years and is said to be easier to learn to fly than a traditional helicopter.
