Will deliver where special. technique won’t work
Most developers of passenger type multirotors position their machines as air vehicles implemented to improve urban mobility. What can not be said about the American company Ryse Aero Technologies, which has just announced eVTOL – Recon. This aerial 6-engine machine capable of carrying one person was specially designed for flights in rural conditions.
The flagship air vehicle has been designed for large North American farms with remote and/or inaccessible locations. However, there is no doubt that Recon can also find its application in other areas of human activity, especially in those missions where the potential of all-wheel drive all-terrain vehicles is not enough. According to Erik Stephansen, Ryse’s Director of Regulatory Affairs, “The Recon’s main advantage is the ability to operate the device without special training in any terrain, whether it’s searching for a stray calf or rescuing a lost mushroom picker.”
The press release states that “the patented removable battery and vehicle control systems have been designed to be operated by a person with limited training through advanced artificial intelligence and simple control systems.” The Recon “may be configured in a variety of configurations, with future options to include the option of a fixed wing.” The flight range of the air vehicle is 40 km, the maximum speed is 101 km / h … the manufacturer does not say anything more. Neither the availability nor the price … In general, to be continued! The official website of Ryse Aero Technologies is here.
