Earlier today we spoke about the Eurocopter X3 concept, now we have come across a video showing off this impressive and innovative helicopter.

The video lasts 8 minutes and is very in-depth, we have embedded at the end of this post, the X3 (X cube) aims to deliver three main goals, affordable cost, more speed and more range.

The video goes into detail as to how the X3 achieves these goals, Eurocopter hope that the X3 will be perfect for people wanting a high-speed shuttle between small cities, not only this but it would be ideal for search and rescue missions and perhaps could help the military.

The X3 puts something called the H3 concept into action, the H3 concept aims to combine high speeds, long range, hover capabilities and high speed cruise efficiency at an ‘affordable price’.

The X3 project started back in January 2008, if you would like to see what manufacturers and engineers have done to make this a fast, versatile and efficient helicopter check out the video below.
