E-Volo VC200 electric copter packs 18 rotors and drone looks

e-volo vc200 readyThe next most astonishing and revolutionary helicopter is here. It goes by the name of E-Volo VC200 Electric Helicopter or more lovingly, ‘Volocopter’.

This futuristic cool-looking 2-seater helicopter can touch heights of up to 6500 feet meters and cover distances of up to 100 km.

The E-Volo has certainly come a long way since my last report!

You have probably noticed that it is powered by 18 rotor blades and looks a little bit ungainly, but all of this can be disassembled for transporting the Volocopter to another site.

The Volocopter is equipped with an automated control system which doesn’t require the pilot to really worry about flight conditions.The on-board computers and an array of sensors help control the Volocopter.

Each of the six rotors are individually controlled by 20 different computers, and it features 6 different battery blocks that hold a reserve capacity of 50%, should 2 of the blocks fail, the Volocopter can still make a safe landing.
