Lilium Electric Plane

Post by DaveBerlin » Fri Apr 21, 2017 10:25 am

This has nothing to do with the QQ, but I just thought this was an interesting development for the future. This maiden flight was just like flying an oversize Drone so what comes in the future - Dave :)

The Lilium Jet has 36 small propellers runs on electricity, not jet fuel. But this just proves it can take to the sky, it isn’t actually a jet it can take off and land vertically like a helicopter and fly like an airplane, making it just the thing for congested cities because it doesn’t need a runway. In other words, it’s everything you want in a flying car: It picks you up wherever you are and drops you down exactly where you want to go. A full-size prototype of the airplane made its maiden voyage an airfield near Munich earlier this month. It lasted just a few minutes, with no one in either of the two seats, and a pilot controlling it from the ground - But it flew !

But does it make a noise like George Jetson's car?
