The world's first passenger drone showed aerobatics

The German company Drone Champions AG in order to promote its video game Drone Champions League has created a full-sized carbon-fiber drone with 12 coaxial screws. Its main features are the ability to carry one passenger and perform aerobatics. The aircraft is controlled remotely from the ground.

Recently, flight tests were held at the airport of the Croatian city of Vrsar, during which a mannequin was in the passenger seat. The flight took place at a low altitude of several tens of meters. In the air, the drone performed a series of aerobatics, including a barrel and a longitudinal coup. The developers also conducted a flight with a passenger with a gap of about a meter from the surface. They became the founder of Drone Champions Herbert Weyter.

To date, Drone Champions AG has created only two prototypes - one weighing 200 kg and a second, much smaller mass, designed for flight with a passenger. Accurate data on the technical characteristics of drones is not yet available.
