    Get your orders in

    This looks fun but only a 15 minute flight time between charges might limit appeal, i can see JPPR in one

    Lovely I want one, my slight concern is seeing the traffic skills in 2 dimensions , thousands of these whizzing along sukhumvit will need some "Policing"

    $92k for a DIY project fine, letter to Santa penned

    If anyome wants to to go shares I have space garage workshop , if only I knew someone in Chinag Mai with a fully loaded TOOLbox

    They could become the air equivalent of the electric scooter which is plaguing pavements and streets in the UK. Can you imagine loads of Thais buzzing around in them, it'd be carnage.

    Drastic solution, although with cuts in the UK perhaps one not too far off

    Looking at the stats again, top speed 63km/h and 15 min run time on the battery only gives you c7 miles at most i suppose its enough to get you to the end of your drive and back to pick up the post. They are going to have to do something with increasing the range and duration.
