remember the e-volo? the multicopter that caught our attention about two and half years ago? (apparently, the original prove of concept was dubbed as a VC1). well, it has evolved, or rather the company behind has came up with another awesome way of taking to sky and it sure is a whole lot safer and less
you have read a lot about flying cars, but until now none has come close to fruition and so the SkyRunner Flying Car you see here is your best bet for a road-running vehicle that can take to sky. technically, it qualifies as a flying car because it can actually takes to the sky, but it isn’t quite the flying car you might have dreamed of.
the line between radio controlled aircraft and UAV (or drone) is being further blurred by new entrants such as the 3DR Iris Quadcopter UAV. actually, we are not sure if we should refer the Iris as a UAV or a radio control quadcopter, but one thing we are sure is that these things are a lot easier fly than it was a decade ago.
you heard about the prowess of the camera onboard the Nokia 1020, but we bet you didn’t know you could harness that 41MP awesomeness for aerial photography as well. amazingly, you can with the new Lehmann Aviation LA300 UAV. the LA300 is officially, the world’s first drone to utilize a smartphone’s high resolution camera for capturing high definition
in what seems like an infinite phase of development and testing, James Bond-wannabes finally will have a glint of hope of seeing the Martin Jetpack taking to the sky next year. the latest prototype P12, seen here clad in a new striking paint job, features various tweaks including changing the position of the ducts for enhanced
we almost wanted to term the Saker S-1 Personal Jet a Fighter Jet, but it isn’t one. Saker Aircraft, the establishment responsible for this fighter jet-like personal jet, described the S-1 as “where military performance and style meets general aviation” which could only mean one thing: it is freaking awesome. and yet, this aircraft is totally capable of up jetting up to 0.99 Mach
it wouldn’t be fair to call the XploreAir Paravelo the world’s first flying bicycle, as the world have seen a handful of attempts (including this one here). however, the Paravelo would be the first bicycle to achieve practical, sustainable flight of up to a ceiling of 4,000 feet (1,220 meters) and attains an air speed of 25 mph
for all intents and purposes, helicopters are never designed for speed, but for hovering which allows them to perform what traditional fixed wing crafts can’t and go to places where other crafts can’t. as such they have been doing pretty damn well in areas such as transportation of crews to and from oil rigs and
we don’t always tell you how to spend your hard earned dough (ok, maybe we did most of the time). there are times where we just want to share some interesting finds, such as this cute little guy known as the Aeryon SkyRanger sUAS. it is highly portable Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) that falls under the small
the fantasy of flying car grips us. we fall prey to this desire to get our cars into the sky, thanks to the frustration serves up by constant gridlock and the steady bombardment of this fantasy by sci-fi movies. as flying car inches towards reality, we are also quick to realize something: do we really have the luxury of runway
