The ZeroG is being developed as personal hover bike, but, somewhat confusingly, Davinci Technology says it will be adapted as an autonomous eVTOL for planned air taxi service entry in 2023. Following extensive unmanned tethered testing in Thailand, the prototype made a first manned, untethered flight on November 4, 2017.
The company says that the next version of the aircraft will be able to carry a pilot or passenger weighing up to 330 pounds. It says this production version of the ZeroG will be ready to fly during 2020 and says it will be certified and in production by 2023. The eventual autonomous version of the aircraft would be dispatched to a customer's location via an app.
The aircraft will be able to fly for only 20 to 25 minutes and so really is suitable only for short commuter hops. It should be able to land on any flat surface, such as a driveway or rooftop.
At the same time, Davinci's website shows plans for a hexacopter design, but almost no details are available on this program.
