Posted 13 Jan 2010 at 18:49 UTC by The Swirling Brain Share This

An Israeli company Urban Aeronautics successfully hover tested the AirMule. The AirMule is a sort of StarWars landspeeder ducted fan type vehicle that could be used as an unmanned medevac vehicle in future wars. With autostabilization and fly-by-wire systems it can handle air gusts up to 50 knots! Being that it's an unmanned robot it could zip into war zones and fetch injured troops on the field without endangering human pilots. The AirMule is similar to the Moller SkyCar which so far has never became a reality.
