[Kickstarter] 'B' the Flying Car

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Quote:
B is a revolutionary new remote controlled hybrid car-helicopter with a patent pending design. It is capable of driving across difficult terrain using its large rear drive wheels and when the obstacles become too big, simply take-off and fly over them.

thx for reminder about the source redface.gif

I really like the engineering on this one, and yes it Flies, Now, as opposed to the many concepts we see. Would love to see a larger scale and I'm sure one will be built eventually.

So basically they took a quadrocopter and added wheels. Why has this not been done sooner? Quadrocopters are awesome. Also the wheels look badass. I would totally drive that to work and fly across the river instead of using the bridge and not pay those *******s $5 for tolls.

pretty sure it wont be done because those props would have to be a lot bigger in scale to lift a regular size light weigh car plus one person. something to do with gravity and mass scaling:D

Yup. Batteries in their current state don't make for a practical flying vehicle of personal size. It would be too heavy. Not to mention those wheels don't look sturdy enough for it to even drive at passenger scale. There's a few things on Youtube which look more promising than this as far as practical use goes.

But it's a cool toy anyway. I bet it will stay together for thousands more flight seconds than those mall helicopters.

The whole trick with flight is maximizing Wing efficiency when moving forward for example. The brilliance of the (Normal long ) helicopter blade due to it's length acting as a wing as well as propulsion cannot be understated as far as stability, and use in flight. There are now tons of concept ideas out there that have thrown stability out the window, for Toys this is completely fine and great for demo's.

However most are still way too unstable for human use.
