Battery when generating power of the helicopter, may no longer just a dream, team, composed of a group of German flight enthusiasts recently developed powered by a battery of new electric two rotorcraft.
The helicopter carrying 18 motors, concept is inspired by hybrid, although in accordance with the current technology, charge electricity only 20 minutes of flight, the r&d team hope that the future can at 100 kilometers per hour above, flying for more than an hour as the goal, and replace the car, become the main transportation people.
R&d team executive director, said: "I have a lot of traditional helicopter aircraft some advantages, and the first flight there will be no smoke, flying means environmental protection, and the flight is very quiet."
The helicopter can rely on manual assembly, from the top of the double cockpit out 6 root bracket, the top pick up 18 motors, each with a motor with propeller, provide lift and thrust, and the biggest characteristic is can rely on battery as a power source.
R&d team investors said: "because it is easy to assemble, but compared with other model helicopter, it is more complex, and it can also completely depend on electricity."
Research and development team, said their creative concept is derived from hybrid, created in 2011 after the first prototype test, they introduced the second generation of modified now, target after its launch in 2015, to more than 100 kilometers per hour flight more than 1 hour.
R&d team executive director, said: "you can imagine 30 to 40 years later, it can replace part of car use, and can be easier to fly, let everyone to drive the helicopter."
Although is a two-seat helicopter, but there is no real flight test, combined with battery and technical limitations, such as flying weight is two hours charge electricity only 20 minutes of flight, but the r&d team don't give up, still looking forward to one day this electric helicopter can become more popular.
