A Flying Car?

car385 A Flying Car?

Looks like Ron Weasley and Harry Potter won’t be the only ones with a flying car.  Gizmodo reports that DARPA is working on a flying military vehicle.  The Transformer TX, is a flying Humvee-like prototype and it could be ready by 2015. The vehicle was detailed in last year’s Pentagon budget report.

The Government’s envisioned concept consists of a robust ground vehicle that is capable of configuring into a VTOL [Vertical Take Off and Landing] air vehicle with a maximum payload capability of approximately 1,000 lbs.

DARPA’s  requirements include the ability for the vehicle to lift off from a stand still and fly as high as 10,000 feet. But a limit of 1,000 lbs, that must include four marines and their gear?  No wonder there is a call for healthier school lunches.
