That's great, as long as you don't want to fly more than 5 minutes. Batteries are still far heavier than gasoline in terms of the amount of energy contained by them.
You already said it Mr. Bee. If you fiiled it with a ton of Li Ion batteries, itwould not have the power density to do more than a few minutes of demonstration flights.It is the electrical equivalint of the old jet-pack, cute to show off, but tooimpractical to be useful!
FAF. CGI is getting better all the time.There's no way those tiny fans are going to lift that 'craft'.
What ever happened to Moller International?ignore amos
Flies 300 km/hr, call it 180mph, with a range of 300 km, again 180 miles. Figure a 30% safety factor and you're flying 120 miles in about an hour. Pretty cool. My guess is $200k, but that's just a WAG. No way it's in my price class, but ... day-um.
That is too cool!
