    This is actually a very old concept developed in the 50's but scraped due to stability problems. With todays computer power however, it looks like that problem has been fixed. I will say though that THIS MAN is NOT (IMHO) the original inventor. I've seen video from the 50's with an identical saucer flying around, be it Rather erratically.

    I think this particular company took the concept and computerised a lot of the controls in an attempt to stabilise it further.

    At 44 grand i reckon ill be saving for a while, but its very nice. top speeds of 100MPH. mymymy.

    This is for real. The crane is there just for safety. You do not to fall from the sky because of an engine failure. The small film is a footage of one of the first tests. It has been shown on Discovery (and other) many times now.
    If you look closely, you can even see the cable hanging slack from the crane. The safety measure has proven to be nessessary (?) in the past.

    Normally I take the blue one for work and the red one for shopping. The red has far more space for loading the grosseries. For pleasure I have the yellow sporty type. Speed over 500 miles and a very good accelleration. Be shure to fasten your helmet before taking off in this one. It's a bit heavy on fuel, but what the heck.
    For heavy duty I have a green off-the-sky 4-wing-fly type. It handles every kind off turbulence quit good. No problem with windshear. It flies rocksolid.
    If in need I can borrow the white transporter from my neighbour. Last week I took a double bed complete with sleepers and their wardrobe to the other side of the city.
    I do not fancy the black limo saucer. When in a tight corner the water in the jacuzi is not longer in the jacuzi but on the 70 inch wide screen LCD-screen, and that is not good for your wallet.
