Russia’s Kalashnikov Concern, internationally known for its AK assault rifles, has released a video presenting its prototype flying vehicle.
The footage shows a passenger copter which also resembles a flying car.
The vehicle, which has a crew of one, is equipped with eight blades, which are installed along the edge of the copter and run on battery power.
Changing direction can be achieved by altering the inclination of the “flying car” with the help of control joysticks installed directly in front of the one and only passenger seat.
The maiden flight was performed in the presence of Sergey Chemezov, head of Rostec, a Russian state corporation dealing with the development, production and export of hi-tech industrial products for civil and defence sector.
Kalashnikov Concern develops and makes automatic and sniper combat weapons, guided artillery ammunition, and a wide range of civilian products, including shotguns and sporting rifles, as well as machines and tools.
