Primul zbor cu echipaj uman pe un elicopter electric

On October 21st, 2011, Thomas Senkel of e-volo made the first manned flight with an electric multicopter at an airstrip in the southwest of Germany. The flight lasted one minute and 30 seconds, after which the constructor and test pilot stated: “The flight characteristics are good natured. Without any steering input it would just hover there on the spot”. This could be the future of flight, piloting a device as simple as a car.

Mi se pare mie sau suportul pentru picioarele pilotului este de fapt o minge de Pilates? 😀
