October 2017 - “On Wednesday, VX Aerospace hosted its phase one unveiling of the Dash X drone, which has a state-of-the-art design that allows it to be folded up and stowed inside tactical aircrafts on military missions.
VX, located at 2080 U.S. Highway 70, got the reputation after constructing a drone over the course of nine months in 2014 for $150,000, Skillen said. The drone became known as the Kitty Hawk.
About a year ago, post-graduate engineers and faculty from North Carolina State University and the University of South Carolina worked with VX to create the Dash X drone, according to a press release. Again, it only took nine months from the first day to the first flight.” - Ryan Wilusz
