Blackfly VTOL electric ultralight

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

Have you ever wished you could fly over gridlocked ground traffic on your 20 mile commute?

Saw it at Oshkosh this year - I wouldn't want to be around when that thing lands with those 8 exposed blades whirring about - lol

Like 'most' E flying machines (and cars) battery technology has not really caught up to electric motor power demands or owner desire for distance and duration.

Time will tell if this critter ever actually makes it into production or finds a purchasing demographic with $$$$. I have serious concerns about folks with little or no flying experience crowding ( or dropping out of ) the low height skies.
