Austin startup Lift Aircraft created Hexa, a flying vehicle that looks like a drone.
The Covid-19 pandemic postponed a planned national tour of the vehicle.
The company is selling a few Hexas for $495,000 (R8.1 million) to be used as a rental.
US startup Lift Aircraft calls Hexa, its electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft the “future of personal flight. So far, it’s been compared to a drone and a flying car.
