05 01 02 03 04 07

The Massachusetts-based firm Terrafugia has announced its Transition design, which is part sedan, part private jet with two seats, four wheels and wings that fold up so it can be driven like a car, will be on sale in less than two years. They have also unveiled plans for a TF-X model that will be small enough to fit in a garage, and won’t need a runway to take off. Motorised rotors attached to the wings of the TF-X make it possible to take off from standing still. This means cars could switch from driving to flying when they encounter traffic. However, the wingspan requires a diameter of 100 feet to do so.

NYC Via RC.


There are so many things folks can do in New York, but one of the first things that newcomers tend to do is take a tour.  But recently someone out in the city had the smart idea to just film a tour… and this isn’t one from a bus, a bike, or a boat.  A small camera was strapped to a professional grade remote controlled air plane, and let loose around the city.  Check the video below, the images they captured are pretty dope.
