    Default One Seat Electric Helicopter Coming Next Year




    A Japanese company with plenty of experience making small, remote-controlled electric helicopters is building a human-sized version. Hirobo unveiled its single-seat electric helicopter at a technology expo in Japan and hopes to make its first flight for next year.

    Single-seat helicopters have long fascinated aviation buffs who dream of Jetsons-like personal transportation, and such a machine would be useful in military, search-and-rescue, and law-enforcement applications. Yes, unmanned aerial vehicles have in recent years filled a niche many thought single-seat helos would occupy, but the dream of a personal flying machine remains. We’ve seen a few ideas in recent years, including a contraption powered by hydrogen peroxide rockets. And of course there’s always yet another jetpa— umm … ducted fanpack.

    Hirobo builds small R/C helicopters, including the battery-powered toys you see at the mall. The full-size HX-1 is essentially the same thing, only bigger. It uses a similar co-axial main rotor to eliminate the need for a tail rotor, and the company says it is expected to fly for as long as 30 minutes at 60 mph. The pilot uses fly-by-wire controls, or the machine can be flown remotely to aid in emergency evacuations or search-and-rescue operations. The idea is this full size R/C helicopter could be flown to the person in need, who would then be airlifted to safety.

    And, of course, the HX-1 could, in the company’s words, serve a “pleasure purpose for rich people.” That goes without saying, given the price is said to be $375,000.

    The HX-1 has not yet flown, but Flight Global says “limited” hover tests have been made and flight tests are expected next year.

    Hopefully they don't break within the first 10 minutes of using them like the toy ones do.
