The AXIX’s hybrid close-air support vehicle will be powered by a Kawasaki Mule engine/CVT, with a Quick-Charge hybrid link to (4)Tesla Model S induction motors; Dual axial rotors for 5- axis flight; carbon fiber/aluminum fused construction; a phenomenal power to weight ratio for flight.

Also noted that the construction of hybrid quad-rotor close-air support vehicle will be 3D printing.

The militarized version will have cannon and rocket weapons.
