New Delhi: Airbus Helicopters has conducted its full-scale demonstrator flight of its electric helicopter.

The chopper is fully electric with a distributed drive system.

It took off at 2,310 kg - the highest take-off weight of a full electric VTOL aircraft with a distributed drive system.

In a tweet, the company said: "The 4-minute demo saw the 4-seat #eVTOL fly at an altitude of 20 metres."

A vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) craft has the ability to hover, take off, and land vertically.
