This new flying car has already been tested and is ready to sail the skies

Flying vehicles are beginning to emerge from design studios, and at last we begin to see more tangible and ready-to-market models. This morning we were talking about the prototype being developed by Kalashnikov , and now we are going to talk about a dron designed to transport people and in a much more advanced state of development .

It's called PassengerDrone, and the same company that develops it has presented its first prototype. In this case we are not talking about a metal skeleton with several propellers and little more, but a product already developed according to the creators, and with which they already talk about the possibility of bringing it to mass production.

20 minutes of autonomy at 60 kilometers per hour



Passenger Drone is a flying dron designed to carry passengers, and if you buy it you can travel comfortably from one place to another. Its creators say they have been developing it in silence for three years , since they preferred to wait for a finished model before presenting it to the press and the world.
This vehicle is composed of a two-seater cab with a nice aerodynamic metallic finish. Its shape resembles that of a small helicopter, but in the upper part we will find 16 electric motors that replace the internal combustion engine of the helicopters. The result is a much quieter and zero-emission vehicle because it is fully electric.
With a weight of only 240 kilograms , the dron is able to take off with a weight of 360 kg and travel at a maximum speed of between 60 and 70 kilometers per hour . Its autonomy is only 20 to 25 minutes, although it is expected that over time can be improved as they develop better batteries.



From the company say they have been carrying out test flights since last May , having started flying with people since August. However, on their YouTube channel they only have a single video that they uploaded just a day ago with these manned flights, and it's a video where we can only see the Passenger Drone flying at low altitude.
Therefore and no matter how much it is sold as a vehicle of leading technology, we will have to wait for new demonstrations to confirm that it is a really serious and tangible project. In any case, in the press release its creators mention the idea of ​​their mass production , so it seems that they are really ambitious with the project, but for the moment do not give more details.

Another of the points in favor of which its creators presume is its control system. You should try it to see if it is as easy as they promise, but promise an automatic flight mode so simple that it will be enough to mark in the tablet of your controls where you want to go so that the dron takes you alone. And if you want to fly, you also have a joystick to fly in manual mode.
We see on its official website that this dron also can handle it remotelyusing 4G technology, which allows you to take off and transport you without having to touch anything. In addition, in its CPU has a specially designed flight control algorithm, they say, to keep the dron stable at all times and without any vibration in most weather conditions.
The great unknown of the PassengerDrone is its price , since neither in its press release nor in its official website indicate which is the one that they hope to have once put the vehicle in the street. In any case, for lack of more information, we are facing a project that seems to have taken the lead in several of the ones we have talked about in recent months, although it remains to be seen how successfully they can successfully bring it to market.

Transport drones are getting closer

There are interesting times for those who dream of flying cars. From Larry Page dron to Toyota's flying car , many companies are working on them . We have for example Uber , Kalashnikov or Airbus , as well as other small projects such as Terrafugia , AeroMobil , SureFly or Lilium .
The great difference of the PassengerDrone with almost all these projects is that it is a vehicle that apparently has already been developed almost completely , and that neither is a skeleton flying nor a drawing made with Photoshop and good intentions. It would therefore be in a state of development closer to the Dubai flying taxi .
