On June 3rd, the Shenzhen Nanshan District Low-altitude Economic Investment Promotion Conference and Industry Development Forum was held in Qiuxian Pavilion, Shenzhen Talent Park. In this event, an electric vertical manned flying saucer developed by Shenzhen UFO Technology Co., Ltd. attracted the attention of many citizens. This is also the world’s first electric vertical manned flying saucer, which can take off and land on the water and has amphibious functions. It is currently mainly used for sightseeing and advertising performances.
It is reported that the core R&D team of this flying saucer comes from Beihang University and Northwestern Polytechnical University. After more than three years of hard work, they have created this innovative product. The flying saucer adopts a six-hole ducted 12-blade motor structure to achieve triple safety redundancy in terms of power supply, power motor, and flight control. The flying time of the flying saucer can reach 15 minutes, the flying height can reach 200 meters, the maximum horizontal flying speed can reach 50 kilometers per hour, and it can also flexibly switch between automatic driving and manual driving. The product has obtained a global invention patent.
