We have seen the future of racing, and it includes the Maca S11. This hydrogen-powered automobile and helicopter (carcopter) hybrid is designed for speed, safety, and sustainability. Priced just over $900,000 USD, this eVTOL will take to racetracks around the world some time in 2023, and guests who visited the company’s booth at CES this past week was able to experience a race in augmented reality.

The full-sized production model will be able to hit a top speed of 155mph and has room for a single pilot, guarded by several AI-powered obstacle / collision avoidance mechanisms in case anything goes wrong. Power comes from three duo-rotors and six electric motors, all running on hydrogen that generate approximately 268 horsepower. Maca aims to have functional prototypes flying later this year.
- Light as a Smartphone - Weighing less than 0 55lbs / 249 grams, DJI Mini SE is roughly the same weight as the smartphone. In the United States and Canada, you can fly this camera drone without the need to register your drone with the local government.
- Capture on the Go - The lightweight and powerful DJI Mini SE camera drone is the ideal for creators on the move. The ultra-portable design allows you to effortlessly capture moments in unforgettable ways.
- More Time in the Sky - DJI Mini SE's weight allows it to stay in the air longer than similar consumer drones on the market. Enjoy up to 30 minutes of flight time with a fully-charged battery.
- Capture the Detail - DJI Mini SE supports 12MP aerial photos and 2.7K HD videos. A 3-axis motorized gimbal provides superior camera stability and ensures clear ultra-smooth footage.
- Upgraded Wind Resistance - DJI Mini SE can resist 29-38kph winds and take off at a max altitude of 4,000 meters, so your footage is stable even when flying along a windy coastline or high above an alpine forest.
While most companies are relying on electricity or traditional fossil fuel to power their vehicles, Maca deploys clean-burning hydrogen-based fuel cells, which allows for longer flight times and green energy sustainability. The ultimate objective is for MACA to deliver what we have all anticipated for well over half a century… the creation of a realistic flying vehicle answer to urban congestion,” said Thierry de Boisvilliers, Maca chief operating officer.
