Cloud Stat aims to build the first ultra-light Uruguayan helicopter. Max Patissier, one of the co-founders of Cloud Stat states that the idea was formed due to the high demand of passenger transport and drones that are able to transport loads of up to 200kg.
Their plan is to have two models, the first being a single-seater that is collapsible and the second a two-seater that is closed. Both will be able to reach speeds of 200 km/h and have a flight time of 3-4 hours. They plan to add Patissier’s drone technology, enabling autopilot remote controlling for certain missions. The production for the single-seater begins between January and February. Each helicopter will cost between $70, 000 and $100, 000, reports Elpais.
