      Just another ugly toy for some 1 %er who has nothing better to do with their money ! bog problem,the wings create one big blind spot

      Great idea, cute little toy for the super rich. But these guys have their heads in the clouds thinking they will ever get production off the ground. This company will crash like blue ice falling out of the sky from a 747. Comparing this toy to a Cesena is like comparing an eagle to a pigeon I do wish them luck, they will need it.

        It doesn't quite work like that. You need to stop to set the wings and you need a runway for takeoff. Roadways often have overhead powerlines, lights, signs, are too narrow for "those things with wings", and the traffic ahead of you would prevent you from reaching take off speed. The police would be all over you. Not to mention that once you DO takeoff, you are a dot on someone's radar. They know EXACTLY where you are and where you came from, even if they don't know WHO you are.

        Ya can't outrun the radio. And since there aren't going to be a lot of these $200,000 vehicles around, it wouldn't be too hard to find it.

        Police helicopters will be only too happy to patrol the airways--and that will be another source of revenue for the state, in addition to the landing fees at each and every airport this vehicle uses (and don't forget that cities will want a cut as well) as well as the tags for driving on the roads.

      Saw a demonstration about a car like this a few years ago, surprised we haven't heard about it more. Sounds exciting, but scary that it's only a 20 hour sports pilot license.
