Flying cars getting closer, Moller International launches the M200G Volantor!

, posted: 30-Jul-2007 13:31

At the end of June this year, Moller International began the production of a Jetsons like ground effect vehicle!

The vehicle is designed to take off and land vertically,

Dr. Moller has been quoted as saying the M200G is "the ultimate off-road vehicle" able to travel over any surface,

The M200G is the size of a small car and is powered by eight Moller Rotapower rotary engines,
it is designed to operate to up to 10 feet altitude continuously in "Ground Effect".

It is as easy to operate as a Hovercraft and can speed over pretty much anything that is <10 feet (3.08 Metres)

The electronics keep it stabilized at 10 feet so you can glide over terrain at 50mph.

At the moment they don't believe you need training to operate it, although you can if you wish request a demonstration session in Davis, California, America, once they are available for sale.

they are still working on a way of producing the "Rotapower" engine in larger volumes, as this is the most costly part so will dramatically affect the price, depending on the aforementioned volumes.

supposedly though, you could get your hands on one for as cheap as $90,000USD.

The haven't said who the strategic partners they are partnering with will be, however It is hoped that they can actually get the M200G volantor off the ground (excuse the pun).

Moller have had a large group of somewhat disgruntled enthusiasts for some time now since they announced the Moller Skycar, M400 Volantor,

They have been taking back orders for years that I can remember, and while I personally feel eventually they will deliver, I, like a lot of others I'm sure are itching for them to get to the next stage.

Moller do have a good track record with over 30 years doing flying stuff and gizmos

the following is what I believe to be an earlier version of the M200x

This is a video of the M400 Volantor, the one we are all waiting for :)

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!

Who knows! 

but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!

I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are

*Mobile Devices
*general and specific ramblings
*Dvorak Keyboard

Mobile devices and more
