EHANG 814 Manned Drone

The Ehang 184 has gone through a multitude of tests these past few months, 1,000 test flights with human passengers to be more specific, and they included a 984-foot vertical climb while carrying over 500-pounds. Their most recent test flight covered 9.3-miles that saw the manned drone reach a top speed of 80.7 mph. For added safety, the team also tested it under high heat, heavy fog, night tests, and even a Category 7 typhoon with gale-force winds.

“Ehang says the 184, which is all electric, can carry a single passenger up to 10 miles or roughly 23 minutes of flight. The person in the cockpit doesn’t do any piloting; they just input their destination and enjoy the ride. The company claims its aircraft is able to take off autonomously, fly a route, sense obstacles, and land. And if anything goes wrong, a human pilot is supposed to step in and take over the controls from a remote command station,” reports The Verge.
