Electric Jet Aircraft
Anderson, IN, USA
Electric Jet Aircraft’s VertiCycle is a Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) hoverbike and a competitor in the GoFly competition.
The VertiCycle appears to use the same lift motors as the company’s EJ-1 jet pack. The cycle has four duct fans providing a combined 784 lb (356 kg) of thrust. The prototype has an open pilot’s seat and roll bar centered above the quad fan arrangement. It is believed to be a hybrid system of gas and batteries. It is surmised that like the EJ-1 roll and balance are controlled by computer while forward, reverse, and yaw maneuvers are manually controlled.
