We have seen the recent innovations of technology that are really astonishing. A group of engineers have invented a aircraft named Volocopter that is really great invention.
This Volocopter 2X is a refined version of the VC200, with a limited number of pre-production prototypes now under development for future marketing. With 18 motors and 9 battery packs, the aircraft features a lot of redundancy to make the short trips safe.

The aircraft is designed for up to 100 km/h (54 kt) and demonstrated a speed of 69 km/h (37 kt) in July 2016. The program is supported by Intel’s Ascending Technologies, DG Flugzeugbau GmbH and others.
