NEW Flying-car concept....looks exciting! Hope it catches on.
Acid-test will be to display it at 2021 AERO Friedrichshafen, and see how many actual orders/deposits they take......
I wonder how many $millions has already been expended developing it ....?

In the 1970's, Lloyd Poston built a tandem 2-seater pusher powered by a Lyc 0-290G. with a 66" dia prop(?). Airflow into the prop was good.
Twin redundant 2" x 2" x 0.125" 6061 Al square tube masts.
All the sq Al tube for the airframe weighed in at about 60 lbs.
Had Hughs 300 blades with a hub that took rotor-diameter to 29.5 feet. Twin-tail similar to Marty Hollmann's HA-2M Sportster, but had no horizontal stab.
Reg No. was N-5479.
I think it was written up in PRA Magazine in the 1970's with airframe dimensions. etc
Anyone got any detailed info on the man or the machine?
