A single-seat electric aerial vehicle has been unveiled by a Swedish start-up. A developing company called Jetson has designed a miniature helicopter. Nobody has time to name it properly, so it’s nicknamed the ONE.
What is it?
You may purchase and fly the Jetson ONE, an electric helicopter.
The ONE is based on a “racecar-inspired” robust aluminum spaceframe chassis with eight electric motors, powered by a lithium-ion battery. If one of these motors fails, the ONE appears to be able to continue operating.
It weighs a total of 86kg, Jetson claims it can fly for 20 minutes at a peak speed of 63mph, which is more than fast enough for the ordinary customer. It has a top speed of 102 kilometers per hour.
It’s a multi-copter in the drone style, with eight propellers placed symmetrically on four arms. Of course, there are controls: a three-axis joystick and a throttle lever, as well as numerous LIDAR sensors for surface monitoring and obstacle detection. Furthermore, it will hover hands-free.
Jetson is only going to construct 12 next year, and they’re all booked. However, if you act quickly, you may be able to get one for 2023. The Jetson ONE is almost maintenance-free, ultra-compact, and recharges faster than a smartphone.
It’s yours for $92k with a $22k deposit. It’ll come to you as a partially constructed kit. You must complete it yourself. However, there are additional instructions.
