Later, they named that their new copter will be named as Volocopter. Maximum 2 people are able to board on the Volocopter. Volocopter has 18 rotors. Each blades (rotors) are about six feet in length and are arranged in two concentric circles atop the cockpit. It can easily take-off and land vertically. Volocopter is built in such a way that even some of its blades fails to rotate, it still could fly smoothly in the air and land safely with 12 blades.
