This is the V1 prototype of the AirLift series currently in development.This particular machine is a folding Hex design with alternated props to reduce the form factor.
Here it is seen flying a 13 Kg dummy payload (a steel anvil) for around 25mins during an indoor hover test.
The production version of this machine is due for release soon, and will be a traditional co axial X8, with a unique folding mechanism and the ability to lift payloads up to 40 Kgs , or carry lighter loads for very long duration flying. This will offer the potential to fulfil a range of applications including maritime SAR.
