Kitty Hawk Flyer Ultralight Copter Video
Mountain View, California-based Kitty Hawk Corporation has published a new teaser video of their Flyer Ultralight category multi-copter aircraft.
The all electric ten rotor machine carries a single person and, according to the company's website, will operate at an altitude between 3 and 10 feet off the water only.
The flight time (aka battery endurance) is said by the firm to be anywhere from 12 to 20 minutes long at a speed of 20 miles per hour.
Offered for sale under FAA Part 103 Ultralight regulations, the company claims no conventional pilot's license will be required though flight over congested areas is prohibited. No sale price has yet been disclosed but the company FAQ says, "IS IT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE?
