This flying car concept is based on a scaled up version of our hoverbike which has a small scale working prototype. Featuring a monocoque frame and redundant propulsion, this flying car concept is roughly designed around the eight rotor propulsion systems of aircraft such as the Ehang 184 and the Workhorse SureFly, based on the limited information available.
- Roll is stabilized by lateral forces which rotate the vehicle around the center of mass
- Rotors are mounted at angles to produce roll stabilizing lateral forces
- Requires only eight motors, no additional moving parts, actuators or control surfaces
- Fully redundant propulsion system can operate safely after a motor failure
- Rotors lift the vehicle directly, eliminating the structural challenges of conventional boom and rotor set ups
- Monocoque, carbon fiber construction is lightweight and rigid
- Compact footprint
- Small, streamlined profile for increased range and speed
