    I agree with Mario. We need more battery life. At least an hour. I’m sure someone out there knows how to make that happen. Awesome vehicle!

  2. BarelyAfloat with Steve on June 17, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Is it waterproof and does it float ? I would love to take off from my Boat on one of those‼️

  3. THEWARBOY on June 17, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    You lost me at 20mins unfortunately get that up to like 13 or 12hrs and I’ll buy one

  4. Mr Tower on June 17, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Right now it is a toy for millionaires , but give it time and is going to be so much better , hopefully there is a battery breakthrough soon

  5. thedaddechannel on June 17, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    We WERE getting there, but reality check: ALERT! Joe Biden. The future will be postponed for generations of failed communism.

  6. Soaking Organic on June 17, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    I will fly over the ocean then Oceania next.

  7. David mills on June 17, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    so it’s only good enough to drive to the nearest seven eleven then? okay I’m in.

  8. Mike Gunner on June 17, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    You get that thing to fly 4 to 6 hours I’ll throw money at it but 92 grand for 20 mins not a chance

  9. PirateChucker on June 17, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    As long as we’re not trying to save the planet, I’d rather have a gasoline powered ultra light VTOL which can legally carry no more than 5 gallons of fuel, cannot exceed 55 mph, but the flight time would increase quite a bit.

  10. Chorkaloopa on June 17, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    All this info, yet nothing about the sound and noise level this thing makes. Honestly…..

  11. Lonely Glorious One on June 17, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Anywhere and EVERYWHERE!😆🤘😎 That’s where I’d fly if I had one of them thangz!

  12. redeemed toremain on June 17, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    20 min straight up then deploy mentioned parachute! YES do it again!

  13. Why All The Fuss on June 17, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Unless you own a ranch, not sure where you are going to be permitted to fly this thing. Definitely not within the airspace of any federal property

  14. theo logical on June 17, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    92.000 dollars are you nuts ???? what is the mark up on that ,,you could make your own no doubt for less in 5 years they will be 15000

  15. Paladin of Peace on June 17, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    20 minutes ? Well that’s 20 minutes never done so easy in the history of mankind . I suppose the only things that stop people from living their dreams are fear and finance .

  16. daxx vondrachen on June 17, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    92000??? Get the time up and price down and I can think of a 100 ways better than boat or camper. What a rush people sitting jammed in rush hour traffic and ya zip by in record time and no idiot cutting you off!!!!!

  17. Edward Halpin on June 17, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    $92K, 20 minutes, got it! Shall we discuss the capabilities of cell phones in the 80s (even the 90s) This is a great start. Give it time

  18. MrGrantdw on June 17, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    Yep all fun and games until someone loses their head and you know it is going to happen with no guards around the slice and dicers dumb.

  19. JoeySpeed on June 17, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    Pod racer era as begun

  20. Paul Vigil on June 17, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Just add an alternator. To charge battery

  21. Anders Schoen on June 17, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Hmmmm training course. Is it 5 min as well? As a professional pilot we know why training is long and grueling. The idea and concept is great but to be saying that ALL people can just hop in and fly is far fetched. The majority of car license holders should not even get into a car based on statistics. Aviation authorities and above all insurance companies will not touch it.

  22. L. Schwab on June 17, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    certainly this is the next step for fun vehicles like the quads or jetskis. But by now for that price only wealthy can buy such fun recreational vehicles. At least I won’t be spending that much money into something for fun only. Give it 10 years and more and maybe we have better prices and also better batteries which makes the vehicle more affordable for the middle classes.

  23. Rocket Base on June 17, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Sorry but I think no chance to survive after the crush of that machine

  24. egads2 on June 17, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Hopefully ignoring the flotsam.

  25. Keith on June 17, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Imagine commuting with this thing lol

  26. nils petter hellvik on June 17, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Make it gasoline fueled instead. And later when batteries become more evolved then start using them

  27. C L on June 17, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    check his teeth. .

  28. Thomas Little on June 17, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    I think I would enjoy flying anywhere and everywhere.
    I don’t believe you would have to go to any kind of park to have a great time.

  29. Cookie Monster on June 17, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Small float tubes either side of the cockpit and folding motor arms for easy stowage would make this a perfect toy for super yachts.👍🇬🇧

  30. Estabanwatersaz on June 17, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    “Long commute” to office as long as your office is next door 🚪. Right!

  31. daxx vondrachen on June 17, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    20 minutes is not enough for any safety buffer. But it would be worth pissing on ex boss’s house….hover,,whiz,,,,hover whiz…

  32. C8 L1 on June 17, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I want one !!!

  33. G O on June 17, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Hi great site

  34. sharma sookarry on June 17, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    The military would be flipping out put 2 m249s on this baby and add a switch to fire them the military would be highly interested

  35. david wraight on June 17, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    It’s the worst idea I’ve ever seen , chance of death 90%

  36. LaForge on June 17, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    $20,000 down payment for a $70 – 100k unit for 20 minutes of flight and barely 1500 feet? I’ll stick to my paramotor way above the clouds for $15k 🙂

  37. Brian Cunningham on June 17, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    How about we fly into the Grand Canyon and get so distracted by the awesome ride that we forget about the 20 minute flight time! Uh … canyon rescue?

  38. lol Hggg on June 17, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    They should make gasoline ones

  39. Alan Co on June 17, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    20 mints. No thanks and can’t imagine The price

  40. wesley robinson on June 17, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    You mentioned flying this in Yosemite and the Grand Canyon- both places have strict laws against drones being used in those areas; and since California has classified these vehicles to currently share the same laws and restrictions as a drone, that means you cannot fly one of these around Yosemite Valley fourth through the canyon walls. This is not a free range vehicle to fly anywhere you like; you will still be dealing with personal aircraft as well as drone laws.

  41. GoTerry on June 17, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    We agree on the 20 minute hurdle but have faith… new technology is on its way

  42. aeromender on June 17, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    That’s an awesome machine. I would like too own one. But I hope they are never allowed in our national parks. Sea Doo’s have spoiled the serenity of the Colorado River. Now the sky is next. We need to keep some places unspoiled.

  43. Sarbini Rauf on June 17, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Hydrogen + liquid piston or any small jet engine as far that feed by hydrogen is best answer.

  44. Repz on June 17, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Literally all we need now is a revolutionary battery

  45. Tre' Harris on June 17, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Crater Lake, Oregon would be ideal (late July – early September). FYI, Americans will crash these in large numbers, ie low education + inability to resist extreme sports + low responsibility for personal actions!

  46. Martin Stiastny on June 17, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    OMG !!! I’d lose weight to fly that !!

  47. Jeff Monheim on June 17, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Look awesome! Very limited flight time. What is the recharge time? I would hope for a 1hr flight time to make this a usable flying machine. 30 miles out and back.
    It is the best looking and machine I’ve seen and a 5 min learning curve is just the best. I’ll be watch for progress on this Jetson vehicle!

  48. Charles Gehlen on June 17, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Time for solid state batteries 2 banks

  49. David Gree on June 17, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    I’m thinking backcountry skiing.

  50. Joseph De La Torre on June 17, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Wrong you can’t put everyone, it’s too expensive. You can’t see Yosemite or the Grand Canyon in 20 minutes you’d crash.
