BELL APT – Autonomous Pod Transport, Multicopter Concept

Designed for multi-mission use, payload size and flight performance scale to meet the needs of diverse operations and networks.Delivering what you need, wherever you need it. Endurance is improved by autonomous vertical take-off which uniquely transitions to wing-borne flight, providing Multi-copter payload capability with fixed wing speed./bellflight
