The Silicon Valley firm has been focusing on a single-seat multi-copter machine known as the Flyer. Now, the team made public photos and partial specifications on what appears to be the final output. The Flyer operates 10 electric fans without prop shields, all looking about 3 feet long, organized across an airframe. Flight time is about 12 to 20 minutes, based on pilot weight and the speed you are flying at. When it comes to safety measures, Kitty Hawk has presently chosen to limit elevation to between 3 to 10 feet, and max speed to 20 miles per hour.
The manufacturer states that you can figure out how to fly it in “less than an hour,” and ride it without a pilot’s professional license as an ultralight aircraft, which means you will need to keep it off from populated locations.
Is it possible to purchase one? Yes. It is offered for pre-order at this point at an undisclosed selling price, and solely by invitation. However, you can apply to secure an invitation. Making it less of an invitation? The company also appears to be recommending it’ll make flights open as a leisure experience, which hits us as an outstanding solution, mainly if the folks in charge calmly keep a remote device on hand just in case a pilot gets out of control.
