The Volkscopter F1 by us from Style of Speed is like our Sky :) (Sky Fun) a new kind of Personal Aerial/Air Vehicle (PAV), that is especially suited for urban areas.
With its special quadcopter configuration of the quattrocopter pro- pulsion system and its further highly innovative features it takes-off, hovers, accelerates, and most fascinating, decelerates its speed and even brakes in flight.
With one of the world's first real quadrotor Autocopter, a combina- tion of automobile and multirotor helicopter, Style of Speed has with its Volkscopter F1 once again written aviation history as part of its creation of the "autobahn in the sky".
The outstanding features of the F1 comparise for example our Super Revolutionary innovations of the:
Electric Torque Vectoring and
Stability Control System with a
Brake Energy Recovery System
for air vehicles, that are integrated with the revolutionary
Multimode Intelligent Control System
and by this is in general one of the world's first vehicles with this kind of technology as well, and makes our vehicle even more fascinating.
Air Mutlitplier technology,
beamed energy system (e.g. Raylev),
fuel cell electric, and a Looped Fuel Cell Electric powerplant version,
Moreover, it has as one of the world's first Autocopter with quad- copter configuration a
and belongs by this 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.
quattro flies high!
As we have written automotive history before with both of our Electric Super Sports Cars RE and Apollo Speed-E, we have also written aviation history by our innovations, the Electric Torque Vectoring System: We have not only transformed the quattro® philosophy of the automobile marque Audi into the 21st century, but also brought it together with the e-tron up in the sky.
Unique PAV features
Highly reliable, because the F1 is based on fully matured technologies of Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Air Vehicles (VUAV);
Alternative versions with
What makes our Volkscopter F1 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:
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 300+ MPH/482+ km/h/ 260+ kt;
Fast with a maximum speed of up to 345+ MPH/555+ km/h/ 300+ kt;
High service ceiling of more than 5,000 m;
Quiet, or as it is said, extremely silent;
"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:
- contra-rotating rotors,
- Exoskeletal engines, or/and
- Air Mutlitplier technology
optional Active Interior components;
Fits into a normal garage.
- 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;
