News on March 25, Xpenghuitian has been developing flying car products, and its latest intelligent electric flying car, Voyager X2, has completed multiple test flights and arrived in the Netherlands for the first time on March 10, ready to be unveiled in Europe. Today
Another flying car design patent of Xiaopeng Huitian was exposed on the Internet, the shape is more like a car, and the top propeller is a foldable design, which is really cool.
From the exposed design patent schematic diagram, it is understood that the flying car of Xpenghuitian is equipped with twin propellers on top, and there is a turboprop and tail wing at the tail.
The twin propellers at the top of the car mode can be folded back and stored and rely on the wheels on the bottom of the car to drive, which is not much different from a regular car.
When switching to airplane mode, the top twin propellers unfold to give the car the power to lift off. From the picture, it can be seen that the propeller of this flying car is somewhat similar to the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor,
The propeller rotates horizontally to provide rising buoyancy when the car lifts off; When entering the cruising phase. The propeller flips 90° forward to turn vertically, which reduces energy consumption while keeping the car flying smoothly at the same altitude.
From this design drawing, it can be seen that this is indeed a very cool flying car product, which can quickly switch between the car and the aircraft. The footprint of the vehicle has also been greatly reduced, which does not affect its normal driving on the ground. However, at present, this is only a design schematic, and it is difficult to say whether it can really be built as envisaged. Although he knew that he couldn’t afford it, Xiao Lei was still looking forward to it.
Although the Xpenghui Sky Traveler X2 is called a flying car, its appearance really does not have much to do with the car, but more like a helicopter. The difference is that the large propeller at the top becomes four small propellers on the side, and the cabin is a little smaller. If you look at it from a long distance, you may think that the Voyager X2 is a large drone, because it really resembles it.
The Voyager X2 weighs 560 kg and can carry 2 passengers with a maximum load capacity of 200 kg. It adopts pure electric power, the maximum flight speed is 130km/h, the design flight altitude is below 1000 meters, and the endurance time is 35 minutes.
The aircraft also supports functions such as autonomous route planning and self-service return to landing, which are very advanced in all aspects.
However, the Voyager X2 does not satisfy everyone’s fantasy of flying cars, because it cannot be driven on the ground. Xpeng’s new flying car is obviously cooler and more practical, and I hope to see its birth as soon as possible.
