    Link: SWEET Homemade Flying Hovercraft - First it hovers, then it flies and it can be yours for only $13,000. Could this be the flying car we`ve always wanted?

    at about 1:10 it shows it start to make a steep turn then suddenly stops and goes to last scene of them coming to shore. Wonder if they wiped out. They never show it land either.
    Still, very cool. I will take one too.

    I wonder how well that would fly once it gets to high altitudes with high wind speeds. If it is fairly resilient to harsh turbulence, or if it can recover easily

    "we" have always wanted a flying car that`s very large, only seats two, is very noisy, handles very badly, has a maximum altitude of a few yards, can`t really be driven on roads and can only be flown with any degree of safety over water?

    No. This is a fun toy. Nothing more than that.

    I hope they NEVER invent flying cars, can you imagine todays drivers with the ability to fly? I can`t imagine a 90 year old who can`t even remember that they`re driving flying one around. Might as well teach polar bears how to use shotguns.

    "I hope they NEVER invent..."
    A) The concept of the flying commuter neighborhood is from the 50`s. Look up a picture of John Travolta`s house. The one with the 737 parked outside.
    B) Ford made a hovering car in the 60`s. It never made it past demo because the DOT saw it and didn`t like the idea of a vehicle needed engine power to stop... Like a plane...
    C) NASA is already working on a flying commuter system that is computer controlled. Lookup the SAT project.
    D) Don`t worry. If it ever came to pass, FULL TRIP AUTO PILOT would be a legal REQUIREMENT for sale and operation.

    So, Grandma may program her own ass into a lake but, your car will totally see her car and gently move to the side while you hear:
    Car: "*Bling...* Sync! Please say a command!"
    Old Lady: "I need an E--blub-blub-blub!!!"
    Car: "I did-nut under-stand you. *fssssst!!!*"

    If the do invent flying cars, you`ll need to get a special license for it, and the idiot drivers you see who can`t handle regular cars won`t be able to qualify. I went through pilot ground school years ago, and it was NOT easy. Learning to fly a car you can take on the road will require much more training than we give our drivers today.

    @ Rick S. Or we jsut have computer controled flying cars that navigate a GPS grid system rather than allowing consumers to control thier craft themselves...This would be the one and only way that we could have flying cars

    it`s cool, but why not wait 5-8 years when another company makes the same thing but with great quality. I guess if you have 13,000 dollars jsut sitting around it`d be a fun toy.

    building just a hovercraft will cost you about 3-4000, the wings would add more cost, but from the looks of his they don`t look all that great, probably another 500 bucks.

    $13,000? That is honestly cheaper then I would have expected to have been. To buy a new ATV would run about that much and this thing would be way better.
