Repost where? Searched for it and I think this is a unique idea for the fact that pilots can get away like this its not really far fetched imo.

When the flying car can look like a car and not a plane with some extra wheels, I'll be interested. Practicality is important. They made a plane with folding wings. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but they've been doing this for a while on aircraft carriers.

You could've simply reduced the title to [Yahoo], we can already assume it's news

If it's an article, quote a little bit of the article, first paragraph maybe. And for BBcoding,

[.URL="http://news.yahoo.com/video/science-15749654/flying-car-landing-in-a-driveway-near-you-26007414.html"]Insert what you want it to say here[/URL]

So that when you delete the . in [.URL] you get this

Insert what you want it to say here

But in all honesty, I don't really see these car/plane hybrids taking off with anybody really. At least practically. Interest will sink just like it has for those car/boat things.

Why all the hate? Its an intermediate step from car to more of a true flying automobile a la star wars or other sci fi stuff like that. There will always be that awkward step when moving forward with anything where you don't think its that much different but little by little we advance. Just like horseless carriages. They were very awkward compared to later setups of cars, but they were a step forward from horse drawn carriages. It didnt get used very much, but it was a step towards a car.

Im sure most people that are even able to fly this thing (no doubt it will require a license) will prefer keep their airplanes and cars separate. It will obviously have drawbacks but its progress.

Worst idea ever. Not only will we have complete idiots driving cars on the roads, but will we have complete idiots flying cars too...

you would have to be millionare for this to work properly because you wont just need a 10s of licences before you can even fly one you would also need to pay for the fuel and I have no doubt that its going to cost over $1000s a week for the average family. This will only take off (no pun intended lol) once the price comes down to the prices of normal road cars today and when we have perfected the use of hydrogen fuel cells. So I would say that in another 50-60 years then maybe we will all be in flying cars.
