Show Description
The world’s first electrically powered two-seat helicopter took off and made its maiden flight inside a German hangar on November 17. The e-volocopter is a multicopter, with numerous small rotors arranged in an array, rather than one large rotor with two blades. The rotors are similar to those used on small, radio-controlled ‘quadcopters’.
