Even More "Yes!" Than The Last Post.



"So much "Yes!' "

Via Moe Lane.
Being YouTube, the comments, at least the English language ones, get waylaid by the question of wether this is a manned drone or a helicopter.

1 Now that looks like a Fantastic Car.

2 That is all kinds of awesome.

The thing that gets me about all these multi-rotor vehicles though is that the designers are always running things off of batteries. That vehicle couldn't have had much more range than what was depicted on batteries.

That's fine for an awesome demo that flies around the block. But there is absolutely nothing preventing these from being practical vehicles: except the designers' strange refusal to put a combustion-driven generator (microturbine, lawnmower engine, propane fuel-cell, whatever!) on it. With it, you have payload capacity, endurance, and range. Without it, it'll just be the *suggestion* of a flying car.

(I realize that if you took any of these in the direction of a practical vehicle, the full fury of $bureacracy would descend upon the hapless inventor: but that's the real problem, isn't it?)
