Footage shows EHang’s driverless megadrone in action

The quadcopter can fly more than 9.3 miles (15km) and has a high-speed cruising speed of 80.7mph (130kmh).

The company claims to have tested the drone with 40 different passengers, including Wang Dong, the deputy mayor of Guangzhou, China, where the tests have been carried out.

Hu said: ‘Performing manned test flights enables us to demonstrate the safety and stability of our vehicles.

‘What we’re doing isn’t an extreme sport, so the safety of each passenger always comes first.’

The EHang 184, megadrone is described as the world’s first ‘Autonomous Aerial Vehicle’ for transporting people although it is still not known when the company will make the drone available.
