The future is getting more advanced in technology, and this has been proved by the new upcoming cars. Which you can just imagine or see in movies is now becoming reality ‘The Flying Car’.
And, flying car first invented in 1946 Robert Edison Fulton Jr adapted a plane to be road legal. It could fly at 120mph.
And the top five flying car are:
The first flying car which gained approval from America’s Federal Aviation Administration of its day was the Airphaibian. Rather than modifying a car, in 1946 Robert Edison Fulton Jr adapted a plane to be road legal. It could fly at 120mph.
Then it was simply a case of removing wings, its tail and then it can cover 50mph on the road. But because of lack of money it didn’t go into production and it closed.
Conv Air Car
When you Talk about reverse approach to the Airphibian, this was a two seater car they had wings and a tail added to it. It has two engines, one small 25hp engine for flying and the second one is of 190 hp engine for running on road. There was a fabulous and ambitious plan to make 160,000 for driver – pilot to rent at the airport. However, on its thor flight test pilot mistook the car engine’s full fuel tank for the plane engine’s empty one. And the car ran out of fuel and crashed. And this accident closed the project.
This was car-based with a basic car body covered with a detachable glass fibre frame that contained the wings and tail. The front engine was connected to a propeller at the back via a 3m shaft. It could cruise in the air at 120mph and Ford was even rumoured to be interested in building the Aerocar to sell. But the 1970s fuel crisis put an end to its aspirations.
The project was briefly resurrected in 2000 when a company using the Aerocar name proposed a flying Lotus Elise. That failed to get off the drawing board.
Like most other flying cars that have got off the ground in a physical sense, the Terrafugia is an american design. The transition is a road legal car with folding wings.
And it works after enabling flight mode and there is a safety provision when the car is out of control in the air you drop full vehicle pashute to save you and your car.
Now the other more advanced electric car launched in May 2021, Airspeeder Mk3, which is an electric flying car mainly used for racing. This car is a fully remote-operated electric vehicle take-off and landing vehicle (eVTOL) sfunctional model.
It is built around a carbon-fiber tub ensuring a strong yet lightweight fuselage and features a rote blade on its corners. These blades give it far greater turning ability than a traditional helicopter.
It is also equipped with a LIDAR & Radar collision avoidance system that creates a virtual force field around flying cars to make safe racing.
The power of Mk3 is a 96kW electric powertrain that produces 429 bhp, which is more than the Audi SQ7 and sends power to its rooter blades. The output is paired with a 130 Kg Kerb weight that gives it a thrust-to-weight ratio which is claimed to be higher than an F – 15E Strike Eagle fighter plane.And as it is an electric car it will save non renewable resources and environment as well during running. And these features make it perfect for racing.
