He guys check out these awesome passenger drones that we might be flying in sooner than you think! Should we finally have a real flying car or passenger drones that take us where we need to go? Let us know in the comments down below! Check out our playlists! ⭐ https://goo.gl/KdumQF Connect with us on YouTube! 😀 https://goo.gl/fqrncD Subscribe to Minds Eye Design! 🔔 https://goo.gl/S8IpFj Check out our video collection! 👈 https://goo.gl/UXobsF FEATURED PASSENGER DRONES ⭐ #7 SureFly At the 2017 Paris Air Show, a newcomer showed off its very credible, 2 seats flying car or as we like to call it, Passenger Drone... The 1,100 kg Workhorse Surefly uses an electric quadcopter layout with two contra-rotating propellers on each corner and a range-extending petrol engine, giving it a range of 70 miles and a top speed of 70 mph. The gas engine can then be fueled quickly with petroleum for immediate onward flight. #6 Ehang184 (Ehong) Dubai’s Road & Transportation Agency plans to launch trips with the first fully-electric autonomous aerial vehicle drone starting late this summer. The Prime Minister of the UAE wants 25% of all passenger trips to be made in driver-less vehicles by 2030. This human-size drone, EHang 184, is made in China and has already flown in Dubai. Its manufacturer, Chinese drone company Ehang, showed off the 184 at last year's CES in Las Vegas after 100 successful manned test flights. EHang 184 has enough room for a small suitcase and will be controlled through the 4G mobile Internet. It is able to carry a single passenger who weighs less than 220 pounds over short distances at 62 miles per hour with a fully-charged battery. #5 Hoversurf Hoversurf comes from a Russian company that builds drones. They recently posted a video showing off its latest prototype: the Scorpion-3, a single-seat, electric-powered hoverbike that looks super awesome! The manufacturers say they wanted to combine a motorcycle with quadcopter drone technology to create “an extreme sports instrument.” The electric-borne aircraft is intended for both “amateur and professional navigators,” Hoversurf says. Though don’t expect a motorcycle’s license or even a pilot’s license to authorize you to ride one of these things. The only thing that would, in my opinion, is a willingness to have your legs amputated in the name of extreme sports. The hoverbike uses custom-built software to limit its range and velocity in order to assure a safe ride, the company says. We are wondering tho... Will they put a cage over those blades? #4 .I.F.O. jetcapsule.com Designed by Italian company jet capsule, the I.F.O or ‘identified flying object’ is a proposed two-seater drone/copter vehicle. the chassis, composed of a main central capsule cockpit, measures two meters in diameter and is surrounded by a carbon fiber disk with an overall dimension of 4.70 meters. #3 ProjectZero The AgustaWestland Project Zero is a hybrid tiltrotor/fan-in-wing aircraft. It has been developed by AgustaWestland as a technology demonstrator and is used to investigate all-electric propulsion and other advanced technologies. It is the world's first electric tilt-rotor aircraft. #2. Volocopter The e-volo VC200 Volocopter is a single-place experimental electric multi-rotor helicopter. The e-volo VC-2 (or VC-200) is the second in a series of multi-rotor designs from the German company e-volo. The single-place, 16 motors, all-electric e-volo VC1 "Volocopter" was demonstrated on 21 October 2011. #1 Airbus Pop Up During the 87th Geneva International Motor Show, Italdesign and Airbus world-premiered Pop.Up, the first modular, fully electric, zero-emission concept vehicle system designed to relieve traffic congestion in crowded megacities. Pop. Up envisages a modular system for multi-modal transportation that makes full use of both ground and airspace.

they are all good until you get your legs minced on the props or have electrical failure and drop like a stone!

Or engine falure like in other aircraft right? You say that as if 1 out of 3 will come crashing down. I would think, these will be as safe as most aitcraft we have trusted with our lives for the last 100 years or so.

Back in the 1950s and 1960s when mom stayed home and dad went to work, immigration was under control, people could afford a home and a car on one paycheck. Just remember George Jetson's wife, Jane, was a stay at home mom in the year 2062.

To me, the obvious application is cities buying fleets of these in various configurations (unmanned pickup truck to taxi) with taxpayer money, then renting them to taxpayers (or member-users in a nation-wide system) at operating cost. We need the same thing outside cities for longer distance runs to the city. Also could be private owned fleets, but they'd have to maintain a low overhead of overcompensated executives to be competitive.

First -- these things do need blade guards or to be well above the head. I think guards make sense also as the shape could also promote a vacuum above, jetting air downward. The prices for these things are ridiculous, though. They could and should be produced and retailed between $20 - $30K. Plenty of electric motors for aircraft are available under $2K each. The rest, probably carbon fiber composite, would also not be terribly expensive. I know this because my whole family works in the custom yacht building business and we made an ultralight, as kids. Furthermore, why not build an air taxi that lowers the carriage down 100 feet (30 meters) or so, so it can pickup and dropoff, anywhere. Have the batteries swapped (not recharged in the vehicle) so it can perform continuous operations all day and night. Seriously easy peasy.. (in terms of technology -- it's regulations that might be difficult). These vehicles would be much safer than travelling by car.

Minds Eye Design hopefully yes but we need a jump in energy storage density capability. Existing battery technology is the major hurdle in the way of real progress. At present the weight of the batteries needed to give meaningful performance is such as to limit performance. I did fit one of my Autogyro with an electric motor and it was reasonably efficient but needed a lot of lifepo4 batteries to give 30 minutes flight time.
Minds Eye Design (1 month ago)
My guess would be a whole lot more of them.

We need cheap passenger flying drones so everyone can own one. Drones can fill up the sky and they still not collide each other. If everyone own a drone, we can build big company in the the mountain where it is away from city so every worker can fly his/her own drone to work plus the city will have cleaner air to breathe

OldEngineerGuy (1 month ago)
+Daniel Esposito That was my point my friend, there are many things in life that the average person cannot afford to own but can still enjoy or benefit from them. As for your comment below, I'd imagine that once these are up and running you may be able to rent one and "drive" it yourself. Or, if it is just a taxi service and flies autonomously, you can still take your own joystick and pretend to "drive"! You know what, even if someone laughs at me that is what I'm going to do if I never get to pilot one myself!

I just hope that the modern world is mature enough to handle flying cars or passenger drones. Terrorists make me question if we can make flying vehicles safe. Yet I want my flying car!! The dream of having my own flying vehicle and knowing what my favorite cities look like at night from the air is thrilling. Having a 3-D radar system plus constant real-time enews coupled with that new car smell would be a dream come true.

those drones should have 2 motors : everything backed up so if 1 batterie fail, the other still take control and will still flight but slower. like the airplanes everything should be doubled for security and I m sure that they will pass all homologations/certifications.

No, we should not having flying cars, That will put too much congestion in the sky and there would also be potentially unstable angry drivers, drunk drivers, kids stealing the keys, black market trades, criminals, etc which leads drivers on the ground at risk and air traffic control would be overwhelmed trying to keep the major aircraft in a safe fly zone... Have you not heard about all of the emergency landings and crashes from planes, Now imagine mass motor failures, Engine sabotage, and crashes in the sky, oh yeah that sounds like a great idea doesn't it...

Airbus was horrible to say the least. Agusta Westland combined with linear engine would be the most cost effective solution without giving up any cutting edge design. In the end ground effect gives the best bang for the buck where it suits.

A drone is an 'unmanned' aircraft by definition - they've been around since WWII. If it carries a man it's not a drone.
Randy Higgins (2 months ago)
It can be a drone, if it flys itself by Computer and passengers are delivered to their destination , drone flys back to base.
