Principally made of composites with a carbon fibre pilot/passenger cabin.

Two piece windshield with large transparency doors.

It has an automatic height and position control system plus a ballistic recovery parachute.

Fixed, skid type landing gear with wide struts affixed to lower sides of cabin.

18 fixed pitch rotors are mounted on circular framework (7.35 m or 24 ft 1 1/2 in diameter) above the power plant and cabin. Tilting the rotor plane by 15-20 degrees gives forward flight; there is no tail boom or anti torque system.

Fly-by-light flight control achieved through varying speed of individual two blade, fixed pitch rotors: collectively for vertical motion and selectively for directional control.

There are automatic altitude and attitude control, position hold and landing systems as well as continuous data recording.

Sensors include gyroscopes, acceleration, magnetic field measurement, manometers, optional remote control, GPS point tracking, sense and avoid and autonomous sub-features.
