    Developed by Lift Aircraft, the Hexa is an experimental aircraft designed to expand the accessibility of controlled flight. It has eighteen independent electric motors and propellers that assist pilots in performing a stable, controlled flight. Users fly the Hexa using a three-axis joystick supported by a triple redundant autopilot system. It can take off and land on many types of terrain to include water.
