'We believe these goals are achievable today' It says. So why do I have to wait 10 years for the production model? Put your order in now to be first in line - to loose your deposit, no doubt. A flying electrically powered vehicle sound pigging heavy to me unless the turbine is also a generator. It would need to be the flying power turbine to keep weight down so that is not going to be efficient for fuel given the power needed to use rotor lift. I will stick to my horse drawn Zeppelin thanks.
