E-Volo Volocopter VC200
 
Evolo-VC200
 
Premiere in April 2017, E-Volo celebrated the first series model of a passenger multicopter. Also known as MultiCopter, the Volocopter is a personal aerial vehicle made of fiber composite material in light-weight design. It runs on an all-electric propulsion system for its 18 rotors powered by 9 independent batteries.
 
The 2X is the consequent evolution of the VC200 prototype towards everyday use. Its battery replacement system makes it ready for operation again in only a few minutes. The sporty design includes a cockpit that comfortably seats 2 adults.
 
Developed from the VC1, a radio controlled VC200 performed a first flight on November 17, 2013 in the dm-arena in Karlsruhe. The flight with the VC1 in October 2011 lasted precisely 90 seconds. Following several indoor-flights of several minutes' duration with a number of gentle starts and landings, all the expectations upon the Volocopter are exceeded.
 
The innovative concept of the electric VTOL aircraft was able to so convince the German Federal Ministry of Transport that it resolves upon a trialing scheme spanning a period of several years for the creation of a new aviation category for the Volocopter. The DULV (The German Ultralight Association) is commissioned with drafting a manufacturing specification, operating regulations and the training scheme for the future pilots in cooperation with e-volo in January 2013.
 
The Volocopter VC200 received the permit-to-fly as an ultralight aircraft from German aviation authorities in February 2016. The first manned flight took place on March 30, 2016.
