Half-sized Cavorite X5 eVTOL

Horizon Aircraft’s 50% scale prototype Cavorite X5 eVTOL air taxi, is ready for flying tests.

The Horizon Aircraft’s half-sized Cavorite X5 eVTOL prototype, weighting 500 lb (227 kg), expects flying all modes including transitions by December.

Horizon founder Brandon Robinson, said:

“At higher speeds Cavorite X5 makes a huge difference, because the parasitic drag on any external fans, even if they’re locked in place, is humungous. Even a GPS antenna or a small pylon to carry something, at 200-plus knots (230 mph/370 km/h), they start to make a very, very significant difference.”
