In 2025 civilian eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) Air Taxis will take to the skies to shuttle commuters, goods and services around urban landscapes.

Aesthetically pleasing and practical, this eVTOL's large V-tail design is intended to provide increased safety and reduced noise compared to conventional helicopters. Tricycle fixed wheeled landing gear that enables it to sit low to the ground. The aircraft has 12 rotors, half of which tilt forward for forward flight.

The cabin fits one minifigure and is designed to offer open visibility of the landscape and environment around the passengers. The pilot’s cockpit fits one minifigure and features an integrated touchscreen flight deck with two joystick controls.

The set is 16 inches wide and 12 inches long and sits 7.5 inches tall off the stand and is 14 inches tall using the stand to demonstrate its vertical takeoff capabilities.

To capture the essence of this eVTOL I used a combination of old LEGO System and Technic pieces from my childhood, a few ordered directly from LEGO.com and the rest I found sifting though the loose bulk pieces at my local Bricks and Minifigures reseller in Gilbert, AZ.
