C1 - The Original

The Volkscopter™ C1 by us from Style of Speed™ is like our F1 quattrocopter™ a new kind of Personal Aerial/Air Vehicle (PAV), that is especially suited for cities and their urban environments. With its special quadrocopter configuration and its further highly innovative features it takes-off, hovers, acceleraters, and most fascinating, decelerates its speed/brakes in flight.

First-ever records
With one of the world's first real Personal Copter™ with quattro- copter™ configuration, Style of Speed with its Volkscopter™ C1 is paving the way to the "highway in the sky™" again.
The C1 also features our Super Revolutionary Innovations™™ of the

  • Electric Torque Vectoring™ and
  • Stability Control System with a
  • Brake Energy Recovery System for air vehicles,

    and by this is in general one of the world's first vehicles with this kind of technology as well.
    Moreover, it also features as one of the world's first tilt-ducted fan and quadrotor aircraft a

  • Air Mutlitplier™ technology,
  • Exoskeletal engines™,
  • full-hybrid powertrain,
  • beamed energy system (e.g. Raylev™),
  • Purely Electric™,
  • fuel cell electric, and
  • Looped Fuel Cell™ electric powerplant version,

    and by this belongs to the first air vehicles of these types in general.
    Also, its Super Innovative™ and worldwide unique concept to inte- grate an

  • autogyro-like functionality,

    with further ingenious functionalities of rotorcrafts and planes gives before not known possiblities and advantages.

    Unique PAV features
    What makes our Volkscopter™ C1 this true revolution are its unique features, that are based on already tested components and fulfill easily all requirements of the PAV definition by the NASA:

  • Highly reliable, because the C1 is based on fully matured technologies of Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Air Vehicles (VUAV);
  • Alternative versions with
    • contra-rotating rotors,
    • Exoskeletal engines™, or/and
    • Air Mutlitplier™ technology
    at each shaft or engine nacelle;
  • Safe on the land, because it has an optional Iris™, and Quick Start™ and Quick Stop™ systems for the rotors, that avoid accidents by getting in contact with the rotating rotors while at the ground;
  • Safe in the air by its SuperArchitecture, which consists of an Elec- tronic Torque Vectoring™ and Stability Control System;
  • Safe in the air, because it applys the revolutionary Multimode™ Intelligent Control System powered by OntoLinux™ and Ontoscope™, that lets the air vehicle be controlled by the passenger (Personal Aerial Vehicle (PAV)/Life-flight mode), remote from the ground and autonomous (Unpiloted Aerial Vehicle (UpAV)/Unmanned Aerial Vehic- le (UAV) and Robotic Aerial Vehicle (RAV) modes);
  • Safe in the air by its OntoLinux™ and Ontoscope™ powered glass cockpit with touch and gesture sensitive displays for dashboard and yoke, and the synthetic vision system for near all-weather capability (also used for example in the B!™ and 9ii™) and nightflight;
  • Safe in the case of emergency by its special autogyro-like flight and landing mode on a runway without engines, fail-safe system, which is based on the Pure Electric™ part of the powerplant, and integrated rescue parachute system;
  • Highly fuel efficient full-hybrid powerplant system with Electric Torque Vectoring™ consisting of the world's most efficient recipro- cating engine, the Tricharger™ engine, extremely lightweight Super- Accumulators™, Active Engines™ and optional Active Rotors™;
  • Able to use nearly all kinds of alternative fuels, like diesel, biodie- sel, bioethanol and biogas, as well as synthetic and classic fuels;
  • Alternative versions with turbine or fuel-cell as power generator;
  • Alternative Pure Electric™ version without on-board power gener- ator;
  • Integration with a Brake Energy Recovery System is even possible;
  • Fast with a cruising speed of up to 200+ MPH;
  • Fast with a maximum speed of up to 245+ MPH;
  • High service ceiling of more than 2,000 m;
  • Very quiet;
  • "Door-to-door" travel capabilities;
  • 1 to 2 seats (NASA PAV definition demands seats for 2 to 6 pas- sengers);
  • Two-seat cabin with 1+1 configuration;
  • On-board computer powered by our Hightech Operating System™ OntoLinux™ as the basic platform for vehicle control and infotainment systems, like:
    • Car-X Window System™ and Plane-Window System™ Graphic User Interface (GUI),
    • Glassy™ cockpit technology,
    • Hyper Connectivity™ comprising
      • World Wide Web access,
      • Car in the Cloud™ and Plane in the Cloud™ computing services based on our Castle in the Cloud™ system

        with the applications

      • MapCloud™ based on a positioning/navigation system, and one or more online street maps,
      • AutoMapCloud™ based on MapCloud™ and the Active Cam™ technology, and
      • MediaStreaming, e.g. iCloud;
  • optional Active Interior™ components,
  • Affordable;
  • Fits into a normal garage.
