It's not a flying car. It's a plane with folding wings that's small enough to be driven on a street. This experiment gets tried over and over again and never yields any practical benefits. Most of the usefulness of a car - range, speed, cargo space etc., gets sacrificed so the thing can get airborne. And judging by the video, a lot of the flight stability you get from longer wing and tail spans gets sacrificed so the thing can fit on the road. I wouldn't want to pilot that stubby little crossbreed - look how it wobbles all over the place.

JohnAnthony

None. And none ever will. Driving a car is a fairly simple activity compared to piloting a plane. Most people just don't have the brains for piloting. It's not a video game.

Yeah, they'll sell a few hundred, maybe even a thousand - mostly to collectors of technological curiosities. That's the typical history of flying cars.

Really do tell..... show even one that sold .......or I dont know....... say 25

JohnAnthony

Oh hell, I'm just guessing. 25 actually sounds far more probable.

JohnAnthony

I believe you - I've never researched the numbers. I've seen a lot of the Rutans, Ultralights etc, that are quite small, but they have an extremely limited market - aviators that buy them for recreation. If you need to go anywhere further than 100 miles off, or carry any cargo, or even one passenger, you've got to use a real plane.

I'm guessing, however, that these might have some popularity among some pilots. Again, likely as a curio. I don't see anybody deciding to get one for work commuting - going through the expensive and lengthily process of flight training, obtaining a license, filing flight plans with the FAA, driving it to the airport, per-flight checks, flying it a few miles to another airport, converting it to a car, and arriving at the office. Shit - just use a car.

BUT ONCE IT TOOK OFF, THE PROPELLER WOULD

STOP SPINNING AND THE CHAIR WOULD SPIN WILDLY....

The gyroplane could be supplemental possibilty. The biggest problems would be parking and air traffic. We would have to hire a lot of air traffic controllers to control the traffic flow. Electrical lines would also be a problem, but we could convert to a wireless electrical grid. Passing would be a lot easier, just look out for large birds.
