    Arrowbile? They should have done some focus groups on that.

    I agree with al. The thing will fly like an Oldsmobile and cruise the highways like a taxiing Cessna (you'll have to pay attention to which way the wind is blowing).

    Casino-to-brothel-to-wedding-to-funeral, the last package holiday you will ever take! :)

    I think no turbines were harmed in the making of this demonstration. Maybe they could be called "ducted electrofans"?

    Well scooped.

    Think of its potential as an air taxi.

    Is one allowed to question the flight endurance and range after vertical takeoff?

    Who will insure it for general use in uncontrolled airspace?

    Insurer

    Thank you for your permission. What are the flight endurance and range after vertical takeoff?

    Totally

    You will have to wait until after vertical takeoff before you are allowed to question the flight endurance and range ...

    What I find a bit steornish (beside the steornish video) is the fact that they are already promoting the next (5-seater) model. Also, too: They hired a former Tesla HR exec and named some of their prototypes 'Dragon' and 'Falcon'.
    And it seems they won't sell the vehicles, their preferred business model looks like some air-taxi service.

    Angus.

    They hinted at a 300-250 range of kilometres on their promotional web site. They didn't mention endurance specifically, but I'd guess it's at least a few centimetres more than the range.
  2.  
    Is it space qualified?

    Has it got an ejection seat?

    And can you join the mile high club in it?

    Will it be Goodenough powered?
