Springtail EFV-4B Preliminary Specifications and Performance

Overview

Our next model for flight testing, the Springtail EFV-4B is a fourth generation single engine powered-lift (VTOL) personal air vehicle (PAV), which uses the core technology developed on earlier models.   EFV-4B has significant enhancements over the "A" model, including redesigned fans and variable pitch blades.  Upon future funding, this aircraft will be employed for flight envelope expansion and capabilities testing.
