    I don't think I'd like being in that position for flying.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidWell it already weighs 300lb by itself. Now try stuffing some of these fat people in there that weigh 300+.

    The amount of energy to fuel this just to lift 600lb off the ground would be insane. And for just one person!? It would be such a waste of energy.


    But a neat idea nonetheless. icon_smile.gif


    looks like from the article there would be a 200lb limit...the battery adds another 100lbs too. i wonder how high it goes. people die all the time in ultralight crashes...ugh

    I would prefer to drive a Cyclone to work. Never know when Invid or old people with their left turn signal on need killing. Though I would probably opt for a version with better weaponry.

    I've got over 3000 hours of flying real airplanes, and spend most days dodging "Sunday drivers" who aren't watching where they're going as they fly over the beaches. The last thing I wanna do is start dodging those things, too. The skies aren't as friendly as people think.

    an overweight person? But maybe it comes in sizes?
