Rotor X Dragon Personal Air Vehicle joins flying car competitors
Pilots wishing they could be taking to the skies with their drones – and other aviation enthusiasts with George Jetson fantasies – will soon have another option to the flying car projects already under development with the nearing rollout of the home-assembled Rotor X Dragon Personal Air Vehicle (PAV).
The battery-powered Rotor X Dragon PAV is being prepared for introduction in 2023 as electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft (eVTOL) sold as a kit users assemble at home. The craft is designed to reach speeds of over 60 mph and carry up to 250 lb. of passenger weight for up to 20 minutes per charge. In addition to providing lift and thrust power, all the craft’s eight rotors are configured to take over extra duties in the event others fail, enabling the vehicle to get back to the ground safely.
