RYSE RECON eVTOL Las Vegas Strip
The last thing you’d expect to see on the Las Vegas Strip is RYSE RECON, a single-person eVTOL powered by six motors and batteries. This 286-pound flying machine can reach a maximum altitude of 10,000-feet and hit a top speed of 63 mph. Under normal conditions, it would cruise between 100 ft – 125 ft at around 40 mph.

On a full charge, it’s capable of running for around 25-minutes or 10-miles. The company is aiming to sell the RYSE RECON to owners of ranches, farms or vineyards. However, since this is classified as an FAA ultraight aircraft, it requires not pilot’s license to fly. It does have a 250-pounds weight restriction though, since the motors and propellers aren’t designed for heavy duty payloads. There’s no word yet on pricing, but the company plans on building 100 units in 2023, and ramping that up to 1000 units by 2024.

Being the first aircraft to fly at CES is a big milestone for our company and product. Demonstrating the world’s first aerial utility vehicle (AUV) that anyone can fly at the most influential tech event in the world is an exciting opportunity for us. We have built this vehicle with the consumer in mind and we think everyone will identify with the RECON immediately,” said Mick Kowitz, CEO of RYSE Aero Technologies.
