Very cool idea but I feel the same as a lot of others about it: Impractical, too expensive and they could be doing much better.

Where is my damn jetpack or VTOL car?

Just a quick update the car will be at the New York motor show, so if anyone is out and about near the area then perhaps an afternoon with nothing to do might be something you should take a look at.

Oh yeah, and if anyone does go, try and get some pics and upload them for us all.


peace.

I live near an airport that has houses on the runway. It is a special community of pilots. The idea of flying to work never panned out for them, unless you work at an airport. Landing a Terrafugia on any public road would be a disaster waiting to happen. no flying cars for us. But we were promised flying cars.

Meet your competition, Terrafugia - PAL-V, and it does not look as cumbersome.

That is interesting, although i would most defiantly place a parachute on that as with the model i mentioned. One could say that the pal-v is actually an ultralight re-designed.

Auto gyros or gyro copters have been around for almost 100 years but they never really caught on. The rotors are not powered and act as a wing. The crashes are pretty bad.
