FIVE UPCOMING INSANE FLYING CARS
Five Upcoming Insane Flying Cars – A flying car, a popular theme in fantasy and science fiction stories, is a kind of personal air vehicle that provides door-to-door transportation by both road and air. It is often used to include roadable aircraft and hover cars. Since the first years of the twentieth century, there have been many prototypes built, but no flying car has been launched and reached production status. Many futurologists have ever predicted the appearance of this car but with their failure ever to reach production leading to question whether they will be come true or just a daydreaming for people. Here are five upcoming insane flying cars to be launched soon served.
A beautifully integrated flying car transforming in seconds from an automobile to an airplane is coming to give you freedom to move. Aeromobil, a flying car produced by AeroMobil s.r.o, utilizes the existing infrastructure created for automobiles and planes, and is featured with open doors to real door-to-door travel. Uniquely, Aeromobil can be parked as how a normal car does and fits into any standard parking space. Moreover, it also uses regular gasoline and can be driven in road traffic just like any other car. On the other hand, it is a plane and can be landed in any airport in the world. It is, however, also qualified to take off and land using any grass strip or paved surface just a few hundred meters long. This flying car can amazingly accelerate a maximum speed of 200 km/h (124 mph; 108 kn) in the sky and 160 km/h (99 mph) on land. It consumes 8 liter of gasoline for every 100 when driven on land and 15 liter of gasoline per hour.
- Ehang 184
It claims itself as the safest, smartest, and ecofriendly flying vehicle in the world now. Ehang 184, a low altitude autonomous aerial vehicle, aims on providing a medium-short-distance transportation solution. Early in 2013, Ehang started the disruptive and evolutionary plan of making a new generation of autonomous vehicle. This vehicle is set to match three philosophies; absolute safety by design, automation, and sync-flight management platform. Ji Chen, a friend of Huazhi, the founder of Ehang and the CEO as well, deceased from a flight accident. Then, Huazhi’s helicopter coach also lost his life when a helicopter malfunctioned. These two accidents arose Huazhi’s determination to design an absolute safe aerial vehicle. In 2013, started from designing bigger motors and argumenting his flight control system, Guangzhou Ehang was founded and commercialized the Ghostdrone 1.0 as a consumer product. And at the same time, Ehang 184 project was begun with his alumni reunion and old buddies in the industry and established its core engineering team. Featured with an application designed for Ehang 184, it let the pilot to take off to any location and have an joyful and relax flight after setting the flight plan.
- The Terrafugia Transition
The Terrafugia Transition is a light practical flying sport cars, roadable airplane under development by Terrafugia since 2006 that enable a new dimension of personal freedom. As a flying car, the Terrafugia does not only offer the convenience of driving and the speed of flight, but also incorporate autonomous technologies that will make the Transition safer than any other small aircraft in the sky.
PAL-V has been designing the world first commercial Flying car since 1999. During the design process, it ensures the success by having an extensive computer simulation to simulate all circumtance, both in driving and flying. After testing the proof of concept in 2012, the PAL-V is embodying the flying car which can be used easily which take you from where you are to where you want. This exciting car is impressing as it can only use the existing roads and small airstrips to take off or land nearby and drive to your destination. And thankfully, it is soon to be launched worldwide.
- The TF-X
The TF-X is a four-seat hybrid with wings which has no need with runway to take off since you just need to tell it where to go and it will fly you to where you want. Bringing twin electric motor pods distributing electric system, a megawatt of power lifts you to the sky. The TF-X is powered with electric motors and a 300 HP engine team up. Surprisingly, the engine is also functioned to recharge the batteries. Its ducted fan provides thrust and the propellers for cruise enable it to kite with a top speed of 200 mph in a range of 500 miles. When you arrive, it lands you safely to make sure that you will always have the final say if it’s safe to land. In a seconds it’s an airplane becomes a car providing a true door-to-door transportation.
