Marcus Leng calls his invention “a personal aviation vehicle” — an electric aircraft, so easy to fly you don’t need a pilot’s license. “When you press the thumb stick to climb with this you have absolute full control,” Leng said.
He claims the single-seat aircraft, with eight small but extremely powerful electric motors, can fly itself, like a drone. That’s how it was tested before anybody got on board.
“We first flew 10,000 miles. We did a thousand-plus flights,” Leng said. “Autonomous. And we had a payload of 200 pounds.” – CBS News
