The SureFly, a two-seat hybrid electric octocopter by Workhorse Group Inc. has completed its inaugural hover.

In the video below, taken near Cincinnati, Ohio, it hovers slightly on training wheels, wobbling before descending back to the ground, with the narrator cheering on. The ride lasts approximately 10 seconds.

The SureFly is powered by eight carbon fiber propeller motors, 7.5-kWh dual lithium battery packs, an onboard generator, and a gas engine for an approximate range of 70 miles and a top speed of 70 mph. A ballistic parachute can also be deployed in the event of failure, with five minutes of lithium battery juice if the generator fails. Its applications are diversified, with its vertical-take-off-and-landing (VTOL) used for emergency response, military applications, and agricultural runs.

According to Workhorse, it is the only aircraft of its kind to obtain Federal Aviation Administration experimental certification.
