All-electric Volocopter test flight

Two years after the first manned Volocopter VC1, our e-volo team presented the two-seater VC200. The first radio controlled flight tests took place on November, 17th 2013 in the dm-arena in Karlsruhe, Germany. The flight tests have been very successful. We performed 9 flights with a total airtime of 20 minutes and still some battery capacity remaining. Our team was excited about the flight stability, the low vibration and the pleasant sonorous sound of the Volocopter.

    I have to wonder how it would fly outside that arena. If it’s anything like the quad copters and what nots they’re selling now it wouldn’t be worth the money to build.

    The video also doesn’t show any people inside. It was a test run. I found this an interesting take on combining two existing technologies. We’ll have to wait and see what becomes of this.
