A manned copter is being constructed.

  1. The construction of the manned Copter FlyingBike continues.



    The FlyingBike will be a double copter with a take-off weight of 460 kg, with a payload of 190 kg, a twin-engine (with internal combustion engines), four electronically controlled variable pitch propellers, an electronic flight stabilization system and a parachute rescue system designed for full takeoff weight.

    The main advantages of this project are:

    - perfect ease of control, which does not require long training and is available to almost everyone (who, for example, can manage a radio-controlled drones);

    - significant autonomy, flight range of about 300 km.


    Details are on the FlyingBike project website

    Nice. Can't wait to see it fly. I really like how you guys are approaching things, keeping things, minimalistic, and using what you have available to you.

    I don't have a lot of spare cash at the moment, but I donated $10 to your indiegogo fund. Good luck raising the money for the parachute system and other items you need.

    I realize English isn't your first language, but I think it will really help your cause if you go through your indiegogo page and fix the spelling issues (like backer where it says baker).
