A drone builder claims he invented the smallest flying car in the world — the Koncepto Millenya

  • Kyxz Mendiola claims to have made the smallest flying car in the world — the Koncepto Millenya.
  • Kyxz builds drones for use in film and television. One day, he decided to build one big enough to carry him.
  • Based on a drone design with multiple downward-facing propellers, the Koncepto Millenya has one seat, can fly up to 15 minutes, and takes two-and-half hours to charge.
  • Watch the video above to see the flying car concept in action.

Narrator: On today’s episode, meet the drone builder turned pilot who invested millions of his own pesos to build a personal flying vehicle based off of drone technology. Watch the ultralight vehicle propel itself skyward using 16 onboard computers and see how it could answer the call for autonomous vehicles in the traffic-ridden metropolis of his native Philippines.

Kyxz Mendiola: Koncepto Millenya is a flying sports car that uses multicopter technology.

Narrator: He claims to be the first person in the Philippines with a car capable of vertical takeoff and landing, and the inventor of the smallest flying car in the world.

Kyxz Mendiola: I’ve been piloting drones for almost ten years now. But flying on something you created, is just a totally different experience. It’s a dream come true.”
