Next Stop: Manned Aircraft
While the world is amazed at the new generation of intelligent transport tool, the founders of Airwheel have set their eyes on manned aircraft which has higher admittance threshold. Airwheel is always one step ahead of others.
Manned aircraft is designed for personal use, which can fly at 100m above ground (20 floors) and about 4m in diameter. Airwheel’s founder Mr. Guogang Zuo set about on this thrilling new project since Sept. 2013.
According to Mr. Guogang Zuo, the main hardware in a manned aircraft is the control board, motor and propeller. “The trickiest part is the control software, it’s completely different from those in electric unicycles, it has to control 4-8 propellers instead.” Currently the manned aircraft is at initial test stage, and there’ll be manned tests at the end of this year as per the plan. “To be frank”, Mr. Guogang Zuo chuckled, “None of us is bold enough to fly it at first”.
As the prevailing of aircrafts, the light and agile low-altitude personal aircrafts are the future trend. According to sources, civil aircrafts will be bound to see a surging demand as land traffic becomes a dense problem in metropolitans, and air traffic is an ideal solution to be realized in the future.
