I used to fly a powered parachute, late in the last century. Then got into wind sports because it was always so windy (or so it seemed at the time) when I wanted to fly. Soon discovered that my concept of "a lot of wind" changed pretty quickly.

I want one! Wait..... did I see a price tag of $139,000 ???

The #@%$#!pit is a little strange and the throttle for the rear motor is not going to work! It appears that you will have to take your hand off the right hand toggle to operate. I did not see a foot throttle for the aero motor that the product description says it has.Did I miss something?

All in all I think it's cool. Expensive but cool.:thumbup:

Did the forum really censor the word #@%$#!????:mad:
It did it again!

That looks a lot like the flying car that Bear Grylls did a show about a few years back. They were supposed to fly / drive it from Paris to Dakkar or something like that. I think it flew like a pig and they almost put it in the water when crossing from Spain to Africa. After that, it was broken and they mostly drove it the rest of the way. They decided to fly it the last 5 miles and crashed it into a bush.

I don't think it ever caught on.
