Our Take on Harmony
The harmony features a unique design - counter-rotating propellers at the bottom of the craft that provide lift. The user is stationed within the center of harmony, and thus protected from the rotors. Because limited technical details have been released on Harmony, TransportUP does not have a prospectus at this time. Keep track of Phase 2 of the GoFly competition for a gauge of the Harmony teams' progress.
