The mobility is changing and some projects that have been presented in the last years are the proof of that. One of those projects is the CopterPack, and it has two generations, the first was presented one year ago and the second has been shown in the last weeks, so we can speak about this as a serious project.
In spite of it has two generations, the designers has not revealed a lot of information about it. The builders define it as “a helicopter of electric backpack with self-leveling automatic driver”. It could be described as a flying backpack or as a manned by drone that can fly thanks to two big rotors fed by lithium ion battery.
There company has only said “the fuselage is light and is built with a carbon fiber panel”. The information that can be said about it is the thing that the videos show. For example, it can be flying during a few seconds and in a low height. It looks like the two rotors are working at the same time and levels the vehicle. The stability is very simple, and to drive it looks like too easy, the driver use two joysticks to move it, so easy.
The vehicle looks like so small to use it for some hours neither for some minutes, the company has to improve the design of it, and looks like they have done it with the second generation. The CopterPack Gen2 is bigger than the first, and it can fly higher and for more time, so maybe we will see how in the next generations the company make them bigger to have more power and to fly higher. At the moment, the company has not said anything about the use of this vehicle, but they are working to make it better. We will see the next generations.
