Electric 18-rotor Volocopter makes first manned flight



If things continue to run as planned for e-volo, it plans to start building large quantities of the Volocopter and enter the market within the next two years

The pursuit of personal flight took a promising, and kind of wacky, step forward today with the electric 18-rotor Volocopter lifting somebody into the air for the very first time. The maiden manned flight went off without a hitch, with the makers intent on using the emission-free aircraft as flying taxis a little further down the road.
