    Man, lot of noise and how off the ground does it take you. I don't know I've been looking forward to these things since the 1960 but I envisioned something more along the lines of a backpack type of gizmo, not a huge machine.

    Getting there though.

    Also where are the flying cars like on the Jetsons?

    Unless it's a pickup, I don't see the Martin coming out of the Accord's rear :)

    So it took us years and all the failures to get aluminum and composite (which protects the passenger) to fly safely, but you want a jet pack. What you gonna do if the engine stalls out or a bird gets ingested.. I prefer something that at least my have the chance of auto rotating.
    86,000 for that...ill pass.

    Yeah I would feel safer in that.....plus it would be cool until every one gets one.....then we will have traffic in the sky. People getting angry.....texting and flying. Cutting you off to get to mcds.
    As humans we can not even master the art of driving with out killing ourselves but you wanna put every nut in the air. Feel bad for the birds.......more road.........airkill.
