I like the concept, but I still have serious reservations that revolve around safety. But are probably ignorant concerns to those of you who are much more tech-savvy than I: Two seater. Since this passenger carrying drone is battery-powered, what happens if it runs out of battery power? Does it drop like a rock, possibly crashing down on pedestrians below. And causing injury or a fatality? Or is there a built-in fail-safe feature of allowing. The pilot to safely glide to an open area like a parking lot of park?
All new Two seater design in here!
What happens in the event of an unforeseen accident in mid-air? In this scenario, there most likely would not be a fail-safe feature to glide down to safety. Rather, there would be the certainty of accident debris from both aircraft raining down on anyone and/or property below. Two seater. How do passengers safely embark and disembark and avoid injury or death from the spinning blades that provide lift to the drone? I can understand that safety is a built-in feature where both passengers must be seated, restrained, and their passenger compartment secured before the drone’s blades will begin spinning.
What are the safety features for someone who stumbles upon the scene and does not fully grasp the danger of the spinning blades? Ever thought about this, Virginia, coming to pass and potential negatives to address before bringing it to public availability? As soon as the battery power hits 10-15% it only allows itself to be no more than 20′ altitude. Maybe it can guide itself to a known charging station. At 5% it just lands itself on a flat surface.

The same thing that happens when two planes collide in the air today! What possible failsafe system can you come up with? No worries the center part is made out of Super Ball material remember the old days when you used to buy them from the bubble gum machine hit the ground it just keeps pouncing till somebody catches it. Emergency parachute for the lightweight aircraft? Or a non-round design allowing for powerless gliding. It can be done.
That’s what military’s top secret pilots like UFO down in 51 area and they flying as floating with high technologies which people don’t know cuz it’s classified. There are more bases that are top secrets in USA and people saw them that made them think it’s UFO. All of these quadcopter/multirotor based designs are products of graphic designers and visionaries. There is little to no advantage of a multirotor system other than a slight bit of mechanical simplicity. In aerospace design, airframe and linkage are the most dependable components.
