No blind spots. Should be easy to drive.

And what's a minor fender bender in this thing anyways? Certainly I would never be worried about a small fender bender screwing up control surfaces, or breaking my landing gear, or jamming controls.

I'm not even going to worry about kids crawling on the thing when I park it at a store.

This thing will never be driven anywhere except from hangar to runway.

And Terrafugia's real market these days is the military, so if you like the $300K terrafugia, enjoy paying  for the $3,000,000 milspec version.

No, that's not a flying car. It's a driving plane.

No I'm not happy, flying cars are stupid and impractical, I'd much rather we have inductive charging coils under all our streets. Screw batteries, getting my juice from the road makes way more sense. Instead of paying for gas you pay a tax for juicing up the roads. Yes, batteries(or gas) would be needed for rural areas but most paved roads could be converted.

albuquerquehalsey: 1. Geeksaresexy is a shiatty, foul, nerd-pandering  ass-boil of a website.

2. Its a overweight plane that can turn into a cramped, fragile car.

3. Move to a airplane community.

A development where the garages and roads are deigned so you can taxi your plane from a nearby runway directly to your home. Sure it's expensive, but any version of a flying car will cost so much that your middle-class ass will not be able to afford one.


Civil aviation - sitting through an hour of deafening noise to eat a bad hamburger at an airport restaurant in the middle of nowhere.  And then doing it again to go home and be $300 poorer.
