Our Take on the DaVinci ZeroG


The DaVinci ZeroG has made a number of successful test flights, and is continuing its momentum by setting up an office in Chicago, scheduled for "mid-2018" according to the company's website. The company aims to achieve market rollout readiness by 2023, the same date claimed by the UberAIR Initiative (most likely not by coincidence). Finally, the company claims that by 2020 they'll have a functional aircraft that is being tested. Keep watch on the company's move to Chicago and their setup in the United States as a barometer for their future success.
