World’s First Manned Flight Aboard an Electric Multicopter!

This sure is interesting… We’re not sure we’d climb aboard this device, but this man does! What happens when the blades start spinning up is truly amazing!

 

The Youtube description entails “Thomas Senkel of e-volo made the first manned flight with an electric multicopter (VTOL), the so called volocopter VC1, at an airstrip in the southwest of Germany. The flight lasted 90 seconds, after which the constructor and test pilot stated: “The flight characteristics are good natured. Without any steering input it would just hover there on the spot”. This could be the future of aviation, piloting a vehicle as easy as a car.” Could you imagine having your own one person helicopter that would be as easy as piloting a car!?!? We’re in!
