    I think they have only made 2 of them so far though. They need to produce 11 more to complete this year, and 130+ pre sold for 2023. Some lofty goals. Sounds a lot like my partner in a project we are doing, the only difference is he is smart enough not to pre sell until I am satisfied with all the testing

    Interesting that he never got more than 10-20 feet above the ground. Looks to me that the vehicle might not have enough lift to rise above the ground effect. Looks like fun, though.

    I saw this last year. If they could get the flight time up to 60 min, I'd buy one. But at only 20 min, it's still a novelty.

    60 minutes with a 20 minute reserve would be the least that I would feel comfortable with. even at the expense of having to hold either a Student, recreational, or sport pilots permit at a minimum
