The 184 can travel up to 11,480 feet, and it's got a battery pack that's capable of 23 minutes of flying time. But it's actually capable of being smaller than that: it can be folded into a five-foot space, so it can fit right into a standard parking spot.
With propellers folded up, it is designed to fit in a single parking spot.Rather, they can enjoy their flight in the comfort of an air conditioned, F-1 style racing cabin that even has 4G Internet.The manufacturer claims its sensors and computer are smart enough to allow the 184 to fly both in empty rural spaces and reasonably crowded urban areas.The drone does the rest, plotting the course and avoiding obstacles.In the air, it will be capable of speeds of up to 62 miles per hour and a range of 10 miles.

The 184 provides a viable solution to the many challenges the transportation industry faces in a safe and energy efficient way,' said EHang CEO Huazhi Hu.'If you roll the timeline back to 100 years you will see that when we went from horse and carriage to vehicles people had the same concerns of whether you could trust it to take you from A to B,' said Yan.We’re making that dream happen.' 'I think in all of us there is that little kid in all of us that says I want to fly,' said founder George Yan.We’re making that dream happen' EHang claims to be building the world's first 'Autonomous Aerial Vehicle' for transporting people. This is 10 times better,' said George Yan, co-founder of Ehang in an interview with Daily Mail.com'It's been a lifetime goal of mine to make flight faster, easier and more convenient than ever.The country is turning to a Chinese-made drone, the Ehang 184, which can carry a passenger weighing up to 220 pounds for about a 30-minute trip.
The egg-shaped aircraft hovers using eight propellers — two attached to each of the drone’s four arms.
The cabin fits one person and a small backpack and even has air conditioning and a reading light, Ehang said. The company said the drone can be fully charged in 2 hours, adding that after setting a flight plan, passengers only need to give two commands, "take off" and "land," each controlled by a single click.
The passenger need not pilot the craft, merely input the destination.
'I think in all of us there is that little kid in all of us that says I want to fly,' said Yan.
'I don’t want to get a pilot license after five or 10 hours of flying, I want to do it right away.
