Multirotor

Multirotors have powerful and lightweight electric motors… but these aircraft use battery power for both forward flight AND lift. Due to the weight of the batteries required to keep them in the air, multirotors have limited range and poor payload efficiency.

Gyrocopter

Unlike a helicopter, a gyrocopter uses an unpowered rotor. A pusher prop gives the vehicle forward motion, and airflow rotates the rotor, providing lift, a concept know as autorotation.

Managed Autorotation

Like a multirotor, powerful electric motors are used for vertical take off and landing,and like a gyrocopter, in forward flight. Our rotors provide lift via autorotation.

 

With Managed Autorotation, power can be adjusted to maneuver the aircraft or recharge the batteries in-flight.  Thanks to the gas-powered pusher prop, we achieve many times the range of a multirotor, reducing need for heavy batteries.

Progress

Simulator and Static Tests

Thousands of hours have gone into refining our design over the past 3 years, through dozens of iterations and innovations, using a simulator to validate new ideas. From there we progressed to a static testing rig to test motors, speed controllers, and propellers

Scale Prototype

Our quarter-scale ATLIS prototype has been constructed and flight-tested at quarter-scale in order to validate and build upon all simulator testing
