    I've not come across many things that I'd write a cheque out for immediately, but I'm pleased to say I've found one.

    It's a gyrocopter-car! Not only does it tilt etc like the Carver One, but it's easily converted into a Gyrocopter too! It only needs a 165m runway for takeoff and because it's a sub-4000ft craft you don't need a flight plan etc. Awesome. :D

    Somebody get a kickstarter page up for this quick...

    Awesome.

    The only thing that takes the sheen off it is the fact you still have to get out of the cockpit to convert from one mode to the other.

    Well that and the fact that someone somewhere will try and use the street he lives on as a runway and end up decapitating everyone walking down the road.

    Other than that Flaw I want a 2 seater version :)
