The Jetson ONE is an ultralight recreational all-electric personal vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft.
Sweden’s Jetson Aero has already sold out the 2022 production run of this cute little single-seat kit build, which is capable of zooming along at 63 mph (102 km/h).
The Jetson One is a simple design purely dedicated to muckin’ about and having fun. Its single seat is suspended in an aluminum/carbon fiber spaceframe. It’s a straight-up drone-style multicopter, with eight props mounted coaxially on four arms, putting out a total peak of 88 kW (118 horsepower). Jetson says it’ll fly safely if one motor dies, but frankly I’d be more interested in landing safely at that point.
The pilot flies it with a throttle lever on the left, a joystick on the right, and a pair of pedals, presumably controlling yaw. There’s some very basic system information displayed on a little dash that frankly looks like a smartphone in a cradle.
