As we have been saying during all this weeks, the flying gadgets are coming more and more usual. One of this is the Kitty Hawk Flyer, a big electric drone that can transport one person, like if this product was a one-person plane. At the moment, it has been tested, and it looks like it has past all the test that have been made to commercialize.
The principal difference to others flying products with this Kitty Hawk Flyer is that this has six electric engines as opposed to others products like this that work fuel. Other thing to jut out is the facility to use it, it looks like a videogame, it has height, inclination and speed sensors, making the drone to stabilize for its own way, and is controlled with a joystick. The driver can take off and land in vertical position.
A the moment, it has been tested over the water, with an altitude of between 1 and 4 meters, but they are working in a model that could be driven on another grounds, but it will be necessary to have a special license. The company that has been working on it, Kitty Hawk, has said that it is planned to be used in maritime rescues, or in areas like beaches, lakes or bogs.
The brand has said that it has 10 helixes propelled by electric engines, and with an autonomy of between 12 and 20 minutes. The maximum speed is 32 Km/h. It looks like this gadget is prepared to be launch to the market, but it is still in testing, so maybe the company is making some progress in the product before they are launching it. In spite of that, it seems that it would be more like a rescue vehicle than a regular, but who knows if in the future this type of drone can be bought by everyone and could use it every day.
