In this week Detroit auto show, a company from Columbus has revealed a drone like SuperFly Octocopter that can carry two passengers. It has been rated to carry the weight of 400 pounds and can gain a speed of 75 mph. Also the range is around 75 miles. The most interesting thing about this Octocopter is that one who can fly a drone can fly this as well.
This was designed by a small company of Columbus, Ohio.The Workhorse group is looking forward to get the certification from Federal Aviation Administration to launch its production within two years.
Workhorse CEO and founder Steve Burns first questioned that why doesn’t everyone have a helicopter in their garage? He then answered his own question by saying that it was because the helicopter was too expensive and hard to fly. This octocopter can address the issue easily.
He further cited that easy vertical take off and landing, cheap affordability and safety were the major goals of the project.
