A hybrid VTOL cargo plane concept by 4x4 Aviation is intended to carry truck-sized loads at nearly 200 mph (320 km/h)
The VV-Plane proposes to compete with road based cargo transport
Able to lift off vertically, the VV-Plane tilts its ducted fans for horizontal flight
As a proposed alternative to heavy vehicle road transport, UK-based 4x4 Aviation has conceived a hybrid VTOL cargo plane fitted with electric, tiltable, ducted fans that it claims will be able to carry truck-sized loads at nearly 200 mph (320 km/h). Dubbed the VV (Versatile Vehicle)-Plane, the aircraft is aimed at reducing the transport costs in developed countries by claiming a better cost-weight ratio than current motor vehicle transport while also helping in developing nations where impassable or non-existent roads hamper the movement of large loads over land.
