Autonomous human transport

For quite some time I had the idea to build a quad copter that was able to lift and transport people. I gained some experience during my work at a company that produced Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). However I am a firmware engineer and to realize my vision I had dive into unfamiliar disciplines like mechanical stress calculations and circuit design.

Throughout the process there were a lot of uncertainties and I learned that knowing is only part of what is needed to realize my goal. I stared working on small prototypes in order to get a feeling for the involved technologies.

After building several small prototypes, I focused on questions like; how much electrical power do I need? What type of propellers are appropriate? What materials should I use for the frame? Where can I find a place to test? And many, many more…

Engine thrust and power
