World's First Flying Car Has Arrived, Here's How It Looks

The suggestion is clear: please fly this thing over water, where at least if you crash you've got a chance. As long as he can take off and land only on water.

Flyer uses a lithium-polymer battery, which means the all-electric vehicle can only run for about 20 minutes on a single charge.

The device has small dimensions - 4,2 2,6 m - and intuitive control.

Although the company has not made Flyer's price tag public, it is taking pre-orders on it's website. Indeed, lead engineer Todd Reichert said the team's aim is to "take everything hard out of flying, basically to be able to give people an experience where it's super-easy to fly", adding that the machine is "transformational in terms of how accessible we can make flights".

Here's a look at how the Flyer evolved, how it works, and what the latest version looks like in action. Now testing Cora are in New Zealand.

The territory has been controlled by Hamas for more than a decade, during which it has fought three wars against Israel. Israel said it was defending the frontier against crowds that threw stones and burned tyres in an attempt to cross.

Recall that in Ukraine have perfected the airplane "Dolphin".

Flight time depends on environmental factors and if fat chaps like me are flying it, Kitty Hawk claim between 12 and 20 minutes. The fully electrical vehicle can fly between 3 to 10 feet off the water, powered by 10 independent lift fans, and can fly for up to 20 minutes or 20 miles.

At a distance of 50ft the Flyer will sound like a lawnmower and a loud conversation at 250ft.

The uncovered cockpit appears big enough for one person, with their head poking out as it might from a go-kart. While the prototype was merely a quadcopter with a seat, the Flyer seen at Lake Las Vegas comes closer to looking like an actual vehicle.

The company says the vehicle is created to flown for recreational purposes over water and uncongested areas. The company said it's the first step in making flying "part of everyday life". Since then, the Flyer has received an update, and it's now open for test flights for people interested in placing preorders.
