"X" PLANE, the affordable flying car

The cheap competiton of Terrafugia Transition is now available.

Ladies and gentleman, here is to you:


The "do it yourself" 6ooo Euro (10.000 USD) multifunction vehicle (airplane plus light car)

Airplane high wing anfibious Ultralight (European norm) LSA or Experimental (in the US), Recreational or Microlight in other countries.

Manualy folding wings and removable tail in 10 minutes becomes street legal size vehicle, with penumatic motors in the rear wheels, is drivable on streets with A1 drivers license.

Variable geometry wings in flight can be configurated to ESTOL flight to land and take off slow and in short distances, and reconfigured in fast flight in flight to reach your destiantion fast and safe.

Operational limits: No aerobatics, no bad weather, no hard landings, no bumpy fields.

Operational capacityes: Grass, ice, asphalt/cement/country roads; like a normal plane: plus on water and deep snow on floaters with the gears up (floaters are very wide and work well as skies too), and once converted in a car (10 minutes of work) legally divable on pubblic roads previous registration as vehicle.

Plywood structure, composites cloth wrapping, plexiglass for the windshield, all you need is skills, some basic tools (better if you get some electric tools thou) and if you are not two lef handed in 50 hours is ready to fly. 200 hours for less skilled ones.

To ease your work you could have all the plywood precut with a CNC flatbed machine just by feeding it the plans you buy.

The wings structure is steel pipes welded, so you need a TIG welding machine and the skills to use it (or buy your friend the welder some cold beers)

The plans can be registered for the ammount of UD 200 for further imporvements communications, registration is free until Augus First 2011 in promotional period.

Have fun while having the time of your life, drive from home to the city borders, unfold anf fly away
