Futuristic "Fly Citycopter" Re-Imagines the Urban Commute

Forget the hovercraft, because a new concept in urban aerial vehicles is here. Eduardo Galvani has designed the Fly Citycopter, a futuristic helicopter that's geared towards the commuter. Seeing the need for cities to have more eco-friendly options for transportation, Galvani came up with a modern-looking solution that can zip above cars and buses with speeds up to 120 miles per hour.

Fly Citycopter harnesses the power of the sun with solar panels outfitted to its exterior that generate energy during flight. It has a rechargeable electric engine and a body that features a tri-rotor design made from carbon, aluminium, and titanium. These components, coupled with an aerodynamic shape, make for a quiet and easy-to-maneuver ride.

Galvani has designed the helicopter for auto take-off, piloting, landing, and flight planning. It has a cyclic joystick with six configurable buttons and a touch-screen panel with a central-screen flight management system that monitors things like speed, direction, and course. In addition, it includes obstacle detection that will keep the passenger safe and make itself a viable option for daily use.
