looks to me like this will get you up the mountain, over the river, into the lakes out in the forest, along the beach, just everywhere that the govt won't shoot you down for straying into.... you know? I bet this is batter powered and short distance, though, I expect they can build one a bit bigger with a gen set onboard for longer distances
And if you agree that is cool, then check out https://ampervadasz.tumblr.com/post/665735722637148160 and of course, skip the first 35 seconds. As always, people who do cool stuff, can't edit for shit
Marc B sent me the link and info, they are already sold out for 2022, by the way, and are sold only 50% complete. Probably so that all the liability falls on the owner/builder.
A Swedish company has unabashedly adopted the pop culture name synonymous with flying cars and is now taking orders for what might be a viable personal eVTOL. The production model Jetson One was unveiled last week and the 12 ultralight and drone-like single-seat aircraft being built in 2022 have already been sold at the introductory price of $92,000.The occupant steers and decides how fast to go (up to a limit of about 50 knots) but the computer looks after mundane details like keeping it in the flight envelope and away from objects thanks to a suite of LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensors. Like a drone, the aircraft will automatically hands-free hover over a point. Endurance is about 20 minutes. Because it’s an ultralight, no certificate is required.
