Shows a real flying car from Kitty Hawk, and he really flies

On Wednesday the company Kitty Hawk, which is developing a flying vehicle, showed the Flyer. A flying machine, which today is designed for test flights for business and media. In the future, the product may become publicly available and believes that Larry page, Google co-founder who invests in Kitty Hawk.

It May seem that to fly requires serious preparation. The creators of the Flyer I assure that is to control their flying device requires only one hour of training. The fact is that flying car works as a great quadracopter. The only difference is that the pilot is not on earth, but directly in the machine.

Flyer features dozens of electric motors and propellers. It automatically stabilizes itself in the air, which gives ease of management. Flyer is controlled with just two joysticks. In addition, it is equipped with pontoons, allowing it to take off from water and landing on the water.

From the battery to the new version of the aircraft can run 20 minutes. At the moment the altitude Flyer is limited to 3 m and speed — 30 kilometers per hour. CEO Kitty Hawk, Sebastian Tron believes that one day his product will accelerate to 160 kilometers per hour.

The Modern product looks very attractive. At least compared to that which we described earlier. In addition, a Flyer is much more compact compared . Worried about one thing: what to do about a pilot who learned to fly the Flyer, in the case that will refuse automatic stabilization?
