Helicopter of the future
This helicopter is what will be used to repair power lines in the year 2028. Well, that’s the thoughts of the designers Felix Schumacher and Lino Lehner who came up with the idea. The helicopter will be propelled and lifted by four rotors and be flexible to all the repairs needed on power lines. Although goodness knows why the two men in the illustration are looking away from the helicopter.
