    A lot of nerdy electric microcar fans apparently, so here's another one. I want his factory floor to build stuff in:



    I think I'd rather want an electric motorcycle myself. Enclosed Electric varieties.

    Not electric, but this 1964 Honda S600 with superbike engine is more my speed... Jay doesn't want to give it back. I'd put a Hayabusa in a cute MG Midget, but oh the engineering headaches to make things fit. Old school look but not exactly an Ariel Atom




    Look what I found, a 1930 Volmer Jensen VJ-24w, 50 years before Volmer did it

    $250 to join, $99 per month membership fee, and $149 per flight.

    But just how is any of this legal here in the US!? Even if they found a sympathetic FAA person to say it's a legal part103 "powered lift" it looks like it exceeds the weight limit - even with the amphibious weight adds?

    Conventional wisdom and practices yield conventional results. If that is good enough for you:

    I think they figured out how to get kids into aviation. Make pilots, not spectators.
    I'd practice on that basic one at 2:25. I think it's a LAK-16. Wiki.
