The technology could hasten the arrival of new advanced air mobility (AAM) technologies, with close but safe air racing assured by the latest LiDAR and radar technologies that create virtual ‘forcefields’ around the quadcopter flying cars. The vehicle has a carbon fibre chassis and advanced integrally stiffened skin, which allows for the complex shapes of the fuselage while providing structural integrity of the vehicle under extreme racing conditions and manoeuvres.
Rapid hair-pin turning manoeuvrability is delivered using an octocopter format that can generate up to 5G, with the added capability to manoeuvre vertically. This pioneering approach to aircraft design also enhances stability while electronic speed control (ESC) systems empower pilots to exploit the full potential of advanced electric powertrains.
