Z1 - The Original

With our Personal Quadrocopter™ Z1 we achieved once again to create the next fascinating Personal Aerial Vehicle (PAV). Like our other flying fun machines, the Flight Fun™, Sky Fun™, Sky Big Fun™, and Z Fun the Z1 is characterized by its extreme agility, safety and ability to be flown piloted, remotely controlled or auto- nomously.

First-ever records
As the world's first real PAV with quadrocopter configuration, Style of Speed has with its Personal Copter™ Z1 once again written aviat- ion history as part of its creation of the "autobahn in the sky™".
Further features of the Autocopter™ Z1 are our Super Revolutionary Innovations™ of the

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

    that are used for our

  • Active Differential™ #3,

    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.
    Moreover, it has as the world's first

  • ducted tiltrotor aircraft,
  • Exofan™ aircraft, and
  • aircraft with Air Multiplier technology


  • Exoskeletal engine™,
  • full-hybrid powertrain,
  • beamed energy system (e.g. Raylev™),
  • Pure Electric™,
  • fuel cell electric, and our
  • Looped Fuel Cell™ Electric powerplant

    versions, 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 the functionality of autogyros with the already integrated functionalities of rotorcrafts and planes gives before not known possiblities and advantages.

    Highly Progressive Features

  • On-board computer powered by our Hightech Operating System™ OntoLinux™ as the basic platform for Multimode™ 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.

    Further Informations
    Only shown with the images are models of the Z Fun made by Michel Aroutcheff, and the autocopter Z1 Gullwing designed by the marque Mercedes-Benz featuring at the rear the same propulsion system as it is used with our powered lift aircraft models 3³ :) (Triple 3 Fun) and Hawk 333 at the front. As an autocopter, our model Z1 can also be driven on wheels, like e.g. our further model quattrocopter™ F1. Both designs of the Z1 are already overworked by Style of Speed.
