Our Take on the Koncepto Millenya
Not much is known about the Koncepto Millenya other than the public demonstration flight held in the Phillipines and the colorful backstory on Kyxz Mendiola - besides the fact that what he's created is extremely impressive. The Millenya features 32 rotors, is electric-powered, and spurred out of Mendiola's frustration with the road traffic congestion in Manila. Since his 2018 viral test flight, no developments have been released on this prototype, but Mendiola appears to be actively flight testing a new prototype called EMAV.
