The Astro Elroy – a single seater semi-autonomous passenger drone capable of 71km/h and 25 minutes of flight time carrying up to 116kg.

Although it has onboard controls for emergency manual override, the idea is that the passenger enters their chosen destination and the drone does the rest.

    Just measured the distance from home to work. 7.3km (as the crow flies). Could I make it there and back on 1 charge? Might ask work to install a charger on the roof for me.
