Tesla turns the helicopter electric!

I don’t see an immediate need for Tesla to be building helicopters, but I wouldn’t put it past Mr. Musk, a man who has in his career, built a payment gateway, an electric car and battery company (and solar power), a spaceflight and research company, a brain+computer interface company, and a company that plans to create complex underground tunnelways under urban civilization because ‘traffic in LA is a drag’. The last one also venturing into the flamethrower market.

Antonio Paglia sure seems to think the Tesla Helicopter is well on its way. Built in a time where Tesla’s batteries will be able to power large manned airborne vehicles, the Tesla Helicopter carries the company’s DNA, both physically and spiritually. Designed for efficiency and speed, the Helicopter would do well in departments like safety and patrol, allowing the administration to effectively patrol the skies and ground while even in some cases offer assistance in an emergency. Thoughts, Mr. Musk?
