Never buy a flying car...
Unless it’s not for you only.
the most notable features of that Skydrive SD-03 would be:
- eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) capability
- single seat
- eight propellers
- top speeds 48km/hour
The safety certificate constitutes a really important milestone, being an essential step to commercialize that vehicle in Japan, possibly as soon as 2025. It [seems]() that (emphasis mine) “currently, the SD-03 is utilized as a drone cargo service in Japan, but with safety certification, SkyDrive now hope to push their vehicles into a flying taxi service as soon as 2025”.
And THAT is the most important feature
The thing I really like the most in those plans for the Skydrive SD-03, and think you should like too, is this: both the current (cargo drone) and future applications of this object (taxi service) are “shared”, not private use cases. I really hope that it stays that way, and you should too. The alternative, that is pushing personal flying vehicles for commuting and other urban errands, would have the only result to (dangerously!) move traffic jams from eye level to above our heads, just like in the Phantom Menace movie:
