It is hard to believe that only a decade ago first consumer drone was introduced by Parrot in the market and now in 2023 china has unveiled XPeng Voyager X2’s first humane flying drone aircraft. This fifth-generation drone was developed by XPeng Motors which also happens to manufacture electric cars worldwide.
It is a big step toward a new technological era and now it seems possible that in future this kind of transportation is possible on a mass level. The fact that China has developed such a technology is not shocking since Including DJI many other consumer drone-making companies are owned by China.
First Human Flying Drone AirCraft: Xpeng Voyager X2
Because the XPeng Voyager X2 has been recently launched till there is limited information but in today’s article we are going to share with you all many inside features and other detail. So without any further ado begin just don’t forget to visit DroneChest.com for all the latest news about the drone industry.
Design Elements And Air Frame
At the first glance apart from the propeller’s wing arms, XPeng Voyager X2 first humane flying drone aircraft looks like a futuristic car.
The entire airframe is made out of carbon fiber and the main structure is made out of aviation-grade aluminum. This construction offers two main benefits, first of all, it keeps this humane drone lightweight enough so that it can fly with two passengers and their luggage on board.
Secondly, the Carbon fiber in combination with aviation-grade aluminum structure provides it strength and durability at the same time.
On all 4 four wing arms, you will find dual propellers to provide the aircraft’s required to lift and make the flight stable and convenient. The entire design of the XPeng Voyager X2 first humane flying drone aircraft seems like a teardrop shape.
Interior, Space & Comfort
just like the exterior design the interior of the XPeng Voyager X2’s first humane flying drone aircraft also looks futuristic and model. Inside you will find a dual-cockpit display in front of both passenger seats with a tablet-style display at the center.
This human drone also offers butterfly doors which you would have seen in many supercars, these doors enhance the modern looks of the aircraft.
Do remember that in the future this humane drone will get many aesthetic upgrades so it’s possible they add a luggage compartment as well.
But for now, you will have two rather comfortable sports seats with the kind of seatbelts you find in the airplane. The visibility of XPeng Voyager X2 first humane flying drone aircraft is excellent with big glass windows although it is capable of autonomous flight.
Maximum Flight Time, Range & Technical Details
In technical terms, this XPeng Voyager X2 first humane flying drone aircraft is known as an eVTOL multi-copter. You don’t really need to fly it yourself since as we have already mentioned it is capable of autonomous flying.
The total seating capacity of this humane drone is two passengers and the maximum speed it can achieve is 130 kph. For any drone, the flight time is the most important and if we talk about this XPeng Voyager X2 first humane flying drone aircraft it can fly for almost 35 minutes.
It can cruise at an altitude of 300 to 500m which basically will vary from region to region. The empty weight of the XPeng Voyager X2 first humane flying drone aircraft is 360 kg and it is capable of flying with a maximum takeoff weight of 560 kg.
Like we have said before it has 8 propellers and 8 electric motors as well. It is electric which means the main power source is batteries and the fuselage which houses them is made out of carbon fiber composite material like the rest of the body.
It also features a canopy over the cockpit which is not a new design and you must have seen the same in many sports cars. The landing gear on the other hand is a fixed skid landing same as the helicopter.
Safety Features & Security
First of all, the manufacturer really thing about the safety of the passenger as well as the drone which is why the XPeng Voyager X2 first humane flying drone aircraft and comes equipped with a ballistic parachute.
Yes, you have heard it right the airframe of this humane passenger drone also houses an airframe parachute that will engage if the aircraft system gets a warning about any possible danger.
Passengers can also initiate it manually which ensures the safety of both the passengers as well as the drone itself. The parachute system basically works like how the airbags system in the car.
Apart from that it also has other essential safety features like DEP which stands for Distributed Electric Propulsion. To understand it properly let us simply the term, for the sake of the safety of the passengers or cargo it basically engages the redundancy system.
Now DEP means aircraft which has multiple motors, as well as propellers, have a safety mechanism that engages in case if single or multiple motors/propellers fail it can be safely landed with the help of remaining active propellers and motors.
Autonomous Flight & Other Features
The XPeng Voyager X2 first humane flying drone aircraft that does not require you to pilot it since it can basically fly itself. And to ensure safe flight there are many systems and sensors integrated into this humane passenger drone.
If you have ever flown a consumer remote control drone you would be aware of a system called Obstacle Avoidance System. A similar system with 360-degree sensors has been integrated into this XPeng Voyager X2’s first humane flying drone aircraft that detects any hurdle and maneuvers accordingly.
On top of that, a GPS navigation system has also been offered in the XPeng Voyager X2 first humane flying drone aircraft. This enables you to set the direction for your destination using the map and the drone will take you there.
In any case, if something happens to the humane passenger drone it can also take you back to the take-off point and can do an emergency landing in case of any kind of emergency.
