EHang 194 octocopter
No need for a runway with the EHang 184 AAV system. You can take off and land vertically with one-click control. A trip can last up to 23 minutes at 60 mph. It's not exactly a drone, since a drone by definition is unmanned. But it uses the same technology and will need to pass some degree of regulatory issues before it can go on sale.
