Pretty neat...cost of a Challenge Stradale too

That thing is UGLY !!!! But I still love it. It's 2009 for crying out loud... where's my godsdamned frakking JetPack? At least the personal carplane is here.

I find the price to be quite reasonable. One must not forget that it's also a plane !!! And most airplanes are also quite expensive.

I LOVE IT !!!

Oh definitely reasonably priced for the fact that it is a plane. I wonder what the depreciation value will be.

I think they may have trouble getting this thing "off the ground"!

I would not bet the ranch on it and I definitely would not fly it!

They are two separate vehicles and there will be engineering compromises for each application!

Cars are for roads; airplanes are for air!

And at $200K, there are plenty of good value fixed wing aircraft for sale and you'd still have enough $ left over to buy that new Fiat 500!

Taking off doesn't bother me, and flying doesn't bother me, what bothers me is the landing. Give me my nylon, suspension lines, and harness; I'll meet ya' on the ground.

The landing is easy.

It's just like a 201 Mooney. Very low to the ground.

So you have to flare the daylights out of it to make a good landing and not hit the tarmac with the prop!
