Multicopters Take Flight | Intel

The Volocopter VC200 made aircraft history on March 30, 2016 as the first certified multicopter to fly with a
person onboard. Designed by German company e-volo, this electric aircraft gives people a glimpse into a future
where, one day, travel may exist above street traffic. “The Volocopter is super easy to fly, silent and built with
electrical simplicity compared to helicopters, which are difficult to fly, loud and mechanically complex,” said Jan
Stumpf, CEO of Ascending Technologies, an Intel company that has worked with e-volo since 2013. Technology
developed by Ascending Technologies enabled the flight controls, motor electronics and key elements that extend
multi-rotor UAV technology to this new type of aircraft. Special thank you to e-volo for sharing this video. Learn
