I want one!
« on: November 30, 2021, 07:11:47 pm »
I've always liked this Jetson, its price tag is somewhere around $95K. For that price, I think it should come with blade guards, or better yet, the blades should have a shroud with perforated top and bottoms for airflow, then it could be a flying car. Imagine landing that at a restaurant or grocery store.  :2funny:

I don't know about running errands in it, but I can imagine mowing the lawn with it.  :2funny:

I imagine them breaking off into my head and sobbing in death in the mud. Looks dangerous to me. High speed blades spinning? Hmm...

I agree and mentioned that in the original post that it should come with some cowling around the blades with covers on the top and bottom that are perforated to allow for the airflow of the blades.

The wings have to be fairly big,  but u can lift a man like a bird.     Its a matter of getting some kind of power source in there that flaps for you, because it would get really tiring maybe.
