STARTING AND LANDING VERTICALLY BY E-DRIVE
- no necessity of traffic infrastructure (e.g. runways, airfields)
- little need for space
- less noise from electric motors compared to e.g. a helicopter
- no emissions (electricity instead of fuel = renewable energy)
DRIVEN BY MOTORS AND AIRFOIL
In contrast to electric VTOL concepts, which only generate the lift during flight through the propellers, this concept uses additional wings for the lift to save energy during the flight, which is extremely important for electric drives.
If the engine should fail, the sailing properties can be used for an emergency landing like an airplane.
TILTABLE ROTORS FOR FLEXIBLE FLIGHT
When taking off vertically, the horizontal alignment of all three engines generates lift and the aircraft takes off. By gradually tilting the two front rotors, propulsion is generated like in a twin-engine aircraft. Higher flight speed than conventional concepts (multicopters, "flight taxis") can be achieved and the energy consumption is lower.
WING BODY CONSTRUCTION FOR OPTIMUM OPERATION
- Maximized buoyancy, the entire aircraft body provides buoyancy (up to 90% buoyancy, conventional aircraft with fuselage, wings and tail plane up to 50% buoyancy).
- Motor power is used more economically (energy savings 15 - 25%)
- Lower structural forces, aircraft can be built more easily (weight saving)
FOLDING WINGS ON TAKE-OFF AND LANDING
The outer area of the wings can be swung up during takeoff and landing. This will reduce the range by two thirds. This allows the aircraft to land in minimal spaces.
ROTORS WITHIN THE BASE
- Reduction of the risk of accidents by rotating propellers
- Less space required when landing due to the propeller eliminating the danger zone.
