What is X2 Technology ? ™
How does it work? Why is it possible now?
X2 Technology – 2 rotors. 2x the speed.

X2 Technology is an integrated suite of technolo-

gies, improving on the capabilities of helicopters.

It provides all the desirable low-speed handling
characteristics of a helicopter combined with
increased performance, including higher speeds.
