“It is a vertical take-off and landing aircraft, with a novel structural concept, containing eight propulsor assemblies, two pivoting lifting surfaces (front, rear) and a mixed lifting surface (fixed in the central part and pivoting on the sides). By means of a single pivoting mechanism that rotates all moving parts in a coordinated manner, this aircraft switches from a vertical flight mode, where thrust from the thrusters is used to lift the aircraft, to a horizontal flight mode where the aircraft is supported by aerodynamic forces created in its wings and thrust from the thrusters is used to propel the aircraft horizontally drastically reducing energy consumption.”
