e-volo VC200 Makes Maiden Flight. Flying Cars Incoming

evolo1

The e-volo VC200 has made it’s maiden unmanned flight. Does the craft above look a bit familiar? We first reported on the e-volo team back in 2011. Things have been going great for the team since then. They’ve created an 18 motor (Octadecacopter?) prototype dubbed the VC200. The group has taken a smart approach to building their craft. Rather than try to keep everything in-house, they’ve created a network by partnering with a number of companies who are experts in their fields. A sailplane company laid up the carbon fiber composite frame for the EC200. Junkers Profly, a German aviation company, developed a ballistic parachute system in case something goes wrong in flight.

From the outside, the VC200 looks like a grown up version of the Quadcopters we’ve seen here on Hackaday. Even the control system used for the test flight looks like a modified Radio Control Transmitter. The motors are outrunner brushless motors. Props are carbon fiber. We’re hoping the control system is a bit more evolved (and redundant) than the systems used in R/C quads though. Just like in smaller scale models, batteries are still the limiting factor. The VC200 will only fly for about 20 minutes on a charge. However, e-volo says that new technology should allow it to extend that time to around an hour. Not very much for a cross country flight, but plenty to pioneer a new type of aircraft. Where do we sign for the beta program?

Videos are in German, with English subtitles.

Kinetic energy generation from footsteps

Footsteps can power the world. Seriously, this is really exciting. What started off as a Kickstarter campaign, the concept “harnesses the kinetic energy from footsteps and converts it into renewable electricity. By stepping, jumping, or hopping on a ‘pavegen floor tile’, users create clean, off-grid electricity used to power multiple applications – from lighting, to interactive learning displays and charging points.”
