This is a terrible idea. They will have to rework the airspace. Also I’m in kitty hawk NC right noe

A flying car? More problems for aviation. What does the FFA say?
Bite My Krank (10 days ago)
It's a shame people STILL believe the Wright Brothers actually did something first. THE ACTUAL FIRST MANNED, POWERED, CONTROLLED FLIGHT WAS in August 1901 by German born American emigrant Gustave Whitehead (Weisskopf) in his homemade "Condor". Try reading a book now and then, you might LEARN something. As for the toy boat/drone....10 foot in the air, 20mph top speed, and ONLY 20 minutes flight. Not worth the effort. Another toy for those with big wallets and little dicks.

everyone freaking out about this as if its the first ultra light aircraft that exist out there, check out Gyrocopters or paramotors that are in the same class but they are cheaper and cant do stationary flight (better for landing and take off) however a paramotor only need a few meters to do so

Same shit as the Erhang 184. In a crash or strike with a flock of birds, the propellor breaks off and severed the head of the pilot in the open cockpit !

Doesn't look like a car, so is not a flying car. more like a Big ass drone that can carry a person.

It flies, but it's not a car.

I like it. Although, when it comes to practical transportation, the first ten cars that crash will halt the industry. I mean, you saw what happened when the autopilot Teslas crashed, and the Google autonomous car...

I wonder what the FAA would think of this?
Ivan Tuma (12 days ago)
bio-diesel/oil rotary engine range extender wouldn't weigh much in a hybrid design, would run quietly, and wouldn't be a hazard since it could potentially use non-flammable soybean oil. I'd prefer to see a design using ducted fan/electric jets rather than large propellers - time will tell if that would be feasible.

range?
thomas (13 days ago)
I've worked and lived around the flying industry for my whole life. There is no way these will ever be public mass market unless they are autonomous. Taking the hard out of flying is a dangerous thing. Currently the difficulty in obtaining even a basic license to fly is required to keep everyone involved safe. A crash from a basic mistake at 20 mph is unlikely to be fatal in a car. At 1000 feet even, it will be deadly.
Van Hammer (13 days ago)
No such thing as a flying car. There are aircraft and there are cars. This is an aircraft.

That's a flying boat buddy not car
Jut N (13 days ago)
thats why this thing is a mistake, its idiot proof. With this type of tech we will allow idiots where they should never be. In the air. Its going to be like cars on the road, all tech did is allow idiots on the road. Shit with people like larry paige around idiots just wont die and leave the world for people who are not idiots

In a world where people still can't drive vehicles on land properly I don't think flying cars will ever happen, but this thing is a cool toy for rich people to have

this is more like flying boat
Whatyoudo (13 days ago)
yes appropriately named because the Kittyhawk was the first flight of man, and this thing is about the 10 millionth flight of man, duh!

Tbh theses aren't that safe, Helicopters can auto rotate down to the ground safer than a plane as a result of an engine failure whereas theses will just drop out of the sky. They'd need variable pitch props or something but even then the props are probably too small to be of any use in an engine failure. Also she trained to fly a limited safety version of the aircraft over a body of water which is why it took her an hour to learn. Flying in any form is dangerous if there is any human involvement and you can't teach common sense... They're definitely more intuitive than a helicopter but not safer/ able to be used by everyone.

Best one I’ve seen so far! It’s not a car tho. People really need to get over calling it that! Nobody calls a helicopter or a plane a flying car.
Carlos Benjamin (14 days ago)
If everyone is in flying cars the traffic will be in the sky.... without lanes.... or signals.... etc. There’s a whole lot else that needs to take place before this is ubiquitous.

Any chances of propeller blade breaking off, decapitating pilot?
Ruben (14 days ago)
From my experience, this will never happen and we won't see it for 15+ years. I remember years ago ordering a light sports aircraft called the Icon A5. Making an aircraft and having it certified takes a long time and the production of that aircraft is a whole different issue its self. That was a more traditional aircraft as well this i dought will be cheap and then actually practically using them? Were not going to have a bunch of these flying unregulated and uncontrolled flying from peoples homes to offices or downtown.
Ruben (14 days ago)
2:30 That's not true a lot of the new "fly by wire" helicopters can hover in place by themselves if you let go of the controls.​
Benjamin Kern (14 days ago)
so exciting! The fact that these aren’t being designed by a wide ranged tech company means that they are going to focus on this concept, as opposed to just sending it to the market and starting up the next new product
Stefan Margraf (14 days ago)
Flying skills is not only to control an aircraft. It is about safety, navigation, weather, experience and more. That aircraft is idiot-proof? I dont like to see idiots in the air!

Am I the only one who didn't see anything that would qualify it as a car?
fingerhorn4 (14 days ago)
Another total fantasy about mass "personal" air transport. At the start only the very wealthy will gain the permits, hardware and licenses to fly these things. Now imagine a typical highway at rush hour on the ground and extrapolate that to the air. It is not going to happen. Quite apart from the environmental impact, you simply cannot have thousands of private aircraft flying in virtual highways. The safety issues alone would be a disaster. But still these fantasists really think they are developing a convenient transport for the common man. These aircraft are only ever going to be used for sport by the privileged, in very limited numbers.

Every one knows that Helicopters are really just 5,000 critical components flying in close formation. One hour flight time one hour serving time. This is the correct way to fly a vto. Love it !

Gotta love the 480p in mid 2018...

let me understand, 6 or 8 propellers that can (in case of misfunction) brake and cut the head of the pilot? Is this the future?

In what way is this a "car"?
barry williams (14 days ago)
The problem with the flying car is not the car but the people using it. Look at how many deaths occur with people driving normal cars; could you imagine how much worse it would be with flying cars?

it's a car but you can't drive it on road?. I would call it flying kayak.

People were suspicious and cynical about mobile phones and the internet at first, now look at the world. You make progress by experimenting, testing and adjusting. It's an innovative idea and one of several in development.

Send me one or I'll do a test flight for u guys through some cities shit looks dope
heavyduty187 (15 days ago)
Why is it that no matter what. Almost every drone from $100 to this thing only has a 20 minute flight time??? Blows my mind that almost every drone is almost exactly 20 min. Full size flyer is 20 minutes. I seen one a Chinese company made and is a one person drone. Guess what it also had a 20 minute flying time??
PhotoGeorge (15 days ago)
Big problem is using this as transportation will take 10 times the amount of energy that a car would take over the same distance because you also have to keep the vehicle airborne. This will not be practical unless battery technology takes a huge leap.
Elvin 4890127 (15 days ago)
I see so many dangers with this vehicle. I would never fly it in this stage and I don't want a thing like that near me.
Kart Drifter (15 days ago)
This will never happen why? It’s an ultra light. They are restricted from flying into class A B C and D airspace’s... which is virtually every city and town. When this isn’t an ultra light, it will require a private pilots license which 90% Americans can’t dish out the money since almost 40% of them live pay check to pay check. This is cool idea for those who are already pilots. But no.... not unless a computer flies this thing... no one else will fly it.
Kart Drifter (15 days ago)
Maybe in 50 years when battery tech is better and computers control the flight.
Faras Abyan (15 days ago)
Major step towards the right direction, but until engineers can come up with a more efficient and sufficient battery, and also some sort of autonomous flying system, this will and should not be flying anytime soon.
Citizen Kane (15 days ago)
EVERYONE KNOWS THAT IT'S MAGNETO DRIVE THAT GETS US 'FLYING CARS' THAT DON'T CHOP OFF HEADS DUE TO BEING PROPELLERED AIRCRAFT AND NOT FLYING CARS AT ALL. TO GET THE ORIGINAL LUKE SKYWALKER TYPE 'LAND-CRAFT' IS A FEW YEARS OFF. IT'S CALLED 'MAGNETO DRIVE' AND DEALS WITH THE NATURAL OPPOSITION THAT MAGNETIC MINERALS ON EARTH PROVIDE. THEN YOU CAN HAVE YOUR PROMISED JETSONS CAR.

Wright brothers did not flew the 1st airplane, THE INDIAN SCIENTISTS, Talpede did. you DUMB. DON'T KNOW ANYTHING
Robert Ostman (15 days ago)
it seems like a paramotor would be cheaper, and probably safer considering that it is basically a parachute.... there is a design flaw in this vehicle, the blades arent suposed to be exposed without any safety guard, it desperately cries for some sort of shielding, comonly seen in turbine engines....

Brianna Casey (15 days ago)
this would be SO awesome for LI'ers like myself to fly it to work in the city. I work in LIC & travel there from LI just about everyday! ...I can imagine what now takes me almost 2 hours to get to work, would take me at least 10/15 mins. with this vehicle! THAT'd be amazing!
