Looks Like it has a lot of Drone Technology

Tue Mar 13, 2018 8:59 pm ... ying-taxi/

I had predicted a few months ago that drone technology could replace most mechanical helicopter apparatus. I do not think we need to fill the skies with one of these in every garage. But this could be the start of something big. It would be a far more sensible vehicle for ambulances, other emergency and semi-emergency vehicles. The range of this machine is 100KM. About the time it triples it will start providing isolated areas with fast and safe air travel. It looks like it would be a lot cheaper than a helicopter - especially the maintenance. It also would be a lot less offensive landing because it is relatively quiet. About the time it could hold a dozen people it would provide far superior hops to regional and main airports.
