Jetson Aero has sold out the first batch of single-seat multicopters One.
The Swedish company Jetson Aero has successfully sold the launch series of 12 eVTOL – Jetson One class multicopters. The design of the Jetson One is extremely simple, which does not prevent its owner from getting the most out of flying. The almost open cabin has a single suspended seat between the frames of a frame made of aluminum and carbon fiber. Externally, it is very similar to numerous unmanned multicopters.
With four rods and eight rotors mounted coaxially on them with a total power of 118 hp, it can accelerate up to 100 km/h. Jetson Aero guarantees flight safety even in the event of a single engine failure. The controls of the multicopter are represented by a throttle lever and a joystick located, respectively, to the left and right of the pilot, and two pedals responsible for yawing. A very smartphone-like dashboard displays basic flight information.
The on-board computers, thanks to triple redundancy, instantly react to the release of levers by the pilot, forcing the multicopter to hang in place or land. Jetson One is equipped with a lidar that prevents collision with obstacles. In case of an emergency, the “last line of defense” is a ballistic parachute. The dimensions of the multicopter are 2845 x 2400 x 1030 mm, weight 90 kg. It is designed for a pilot weighing no more than 85 kg. The Achilles heel of Jetson One is a very small flight resource – only 15 minutes, after which the battery needs to be recharged. Frankly not enough for a car priced at $ 92,000. The next batch of three multicopters will be available only in 2023.
