We have been quite busy lately carrying out plenty of flight testing of Jetson® ONE production prototype. Here you can see some forward flight, tight turns and a general demonstration of awesome VTOL capabilities with 50kg payload.

We will be progressively adding more ballast each flight(up to maximum 110kg).Based on testing we are expecting up to 25 minutes of flight(plus 20% reserve) for pilots on the lighter weight scale end. keep in mind not all of the protective shielding and fairings have been installed yet.
