"@Nikolai, don't waste time on so called "great ideas" To save on fuel, passenger drone should be built as  blimp + drone hybrid design to make it lighter than air. Otherwise money is lost since fuel is not for free."

"Well, it is definitely very interesting. It would be great to see your progress when you have something more concrete. Best of luck."

"I have talked to Ehang 5 years ago. For stability and safety, rotors should be raised and put at roof top level or above like in real helicopter or drone."

"to be fair to Cessna, 30l/h is at around 180km/h. energy varying as the third power of speed that would be 3l/h at 80km/h .... if it was not below the 172 stall speed!"

About Me:
What to say?

I'm a student (third year of aeronautical institute) I'm a daylight dreamer, really love everything that can fly since i remember, I also love martial arts and photography.

Yes, guys, English isn’t my native language, but I have the impudence to write in English anyway I know well Italian and Russian

In future, I want to start up my own drone business or become a pilot (need some extra money for this).
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I love everything that can fly, I started this hobby in 2012, and now I'm working on gps fully autonomous hybrid quadcopter,I want to create something that can help people in every day actions like carrying things.

Projecting Hybrid aerial vehicle for human transport

Posted on July 31, 2018 at 2:30pm 15 Comments

This might be the future of human transport.

The Ehang 184 is the first of many manned autonomous vehicles and it runs on Lipo like most UAV. They are great but they also weight too much for a long endurance flight compared to their energy capacity, indeed the time this vehicle can fly is only…
