Since 2007, Thibault Chatillon has been working with, inventing, flying and designing drones, including designing passenger electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Chatillon is based in Lyon, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, France. In addition, he's designed the first vertiport network in France for eVTOL aircraft and drones. Chatillon is also working on innovative eVTOL aircraft design concepts for advanced aerial mobility (AAM) and air racing. On several of Chatillon's social media accounts, his handle is Tibo Cat Lion.

The Livraison Express is a medium-lift air cargo eVTOL concept design drone that is either remotely controlled or autonomous. The aircraft's maximum payload is 46 kg (101 lb) and is a scalable aircraft. The fuselage is a rectangular open framed aerostructure and has four guarded propellers on the four corners of the aircraft. The propellers are facing upward on four struts. The container or cardboard box, carrying the cargo. fits halfway under and halfway over the airframe. This means when the drone lands, it lands on the bottom of the cargo container (or box). Then the drone is detached from the cargo container and flies away.

Specifications:

  • Aircraft type: eVTOL medium-lift concept design air cargo drone
  • Piloting: Remote or autonomous
  • Maximum payload: 46 kg (101 lb)
  • Propellers: 4 propellers (guarded)
  • Electric motors: 4 electric motors
  • Power source: Batteries
  • Fuselage: Carbon fiber composite
  • Landing gear: Lands on base of cargo or when empty, lands on aircraft frame
  • Safety features: Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP), provides safety through redundancy for its passengers and/or cargo. DEP means having multiple propellers (or ducted fans) and motors on the aircraft so if one or more propellers (ducted fans) or motors fail, the other working propellers (or ducted fans) and motors can safely land the aircraft. There are also redundancies in the sub-systems of the aircraft.
