    Looks like it could really fly. Power/Energy likely the biggest problem (especially if you try to fit a big fat American in it). But other than limited use in remote areas, I don't see this getting off the ground. (pun!)

    Weight limit 220 pounds. I'm right at the max. I better trim some pounds to be on the safe side.

    I'm all for this. The less time I'm in transportation the better.

    Just wait when a rotor detaches and mows through the fuselage.

    IMHO it would be a lot safer if the rotors were above the cockpit,
    also the low CG would make it much safer to fly.

    I assume it will auto-rotate the moment it loses power (like all helicopters can)...

    Skotty please tell me your profile pic was from the store and not your garage because that would be pretty amazing !!!

    Looking forward to when our electric vehicles become hover boards as transport. Imagine how much less rubber we would use??
