Philippine inventor aims to cut travel times with passenger drone

A Philippine inventor has unveiled what he calls a flying sports car that represents the future of transport, riding it out of a warehouse towards a cheering crowd, leaving a cloud of dust in his wake. Former dancer and camera operator Kyxz Mendiola flew and hovered for a few minutes in a single-passenger contraption powered by the “multicopter” technology commonly used in small unmanned drones.

Mendiola’s machine, the “Koncepto Milenya”, can fly as high as 6.1 m and speed up to 60 kph but its maiden flight lasted just a little over 10 minutes. He said it took a long time to save up the funds for the components of the single-seater powered by six lithium-ion batteries whose passenger steers with a portable radio frequency controller.
