I'd be interested to know what the energy density of its batteries are relative to standard fuel. Uber's Elevate paper outlines that challenge and I know the startups working on UAVs for freight are constrained from going full-electric by battery tech.

Would love to see this exist in San Francisco, but there are so many challenges including noise pollution and most notably, government regulation. Really hope someone cracks this though! cc @chadbyers "They asked for flying cars and instead we got..." 😉

@rrhoover this feels inevitable for me. At least 5+ companies working on electric Helicopters for transport. Electric power will vastly reduce noise pollution. 4+ rotors on most architectures increases redundancy and safety vs single point of failure on standard helis. Pumped for this!
