Price: $164,000 (negotiable)
This concerns a used electric VTOL for sale, pre-owned.
EHang 216 is a low-altitude, high-power, self-driving aircraft made using carbon composite material and metals to achieve the required strength-to-weight ratio.
The length of the aircraft is 5.61m, height is 1.76m, and kerb weight is 360kg. The aircraft is capable of carrying payloads of up to 260kg.
Ehang 216 features a small aero-cab structure, which can accommodate up to two passengers with sufficient leg room and baggage space. Its fuselage is supported by rigid skid-type landing gear, which ensures sufficient clearance between the ground and the rotors.
The fuselage is equipped with four extended V-shaped struts, which spread at equidistance leaving space for entry and exit of the passengers. It is fitted with a taxi / landing light in the front.
The AAV features two gull-wing doors hinged at the top, which occupy less space and ensure aerodynamic shape. The aircraft cabin is air-conditioned, internet-enabled and features well-furnished interiors.
The Ehang 216 AAV is powered by 16 electric motors, which are connected to 16 propeller blades in coaxial double-baled design.
The electric engine on board the aircraft enables a cruise speed of 130km/h. The maximum flight duration of the aircraft is 30 minutes, while the maximum flight range is 35km.
A computer visual system is installed in the aircraft to ensure accurate vertical take-off and landing. The aircraft follows an inverted U-flight path, which reduces the need for excess manoeuvres.
