30846They’ll have plenty of time to sort it out. Terrafugia figures it’ll be 8 to 10 years before the TF-X makes it from the drawing board to the skies, and even the Transition is still a couple of years away from entering production. The company is aiming to start delivering the $279,000 vehicles in early 2015

Looks like it needs a bit of ordnance mounted in a few places.

There are no obvious tube outer doors?

And the color scheme is not quite "Pirate" enough.

Humm, Custom Paint! Like a shark maybe?

THAT IS TOO FRIGGIN' COOL...I'd have to have one in Flat Black...or that deep dark flat gray you see on F15's sometimes...add a couple of long range tanks and I'd need to carry my passport in my back pocket all the time...

I'd say a monochrome flat black, tinted windows and a small skull and crossed knives on the side would be uber cool. My bet - the airline industry will do its best to see this never makes it to market.

I'll stick with this--its proven AND it comes factory loaded

I must admit, that's not what I was expecting with the subject line.

I had also followed Woody Norris' "Choppah for some time. It too, looked promising. http://www.gizmag.com/the-airscooter-a-helicopter-for-the-home/3056/picture/5713/30851

If it floats, flies or fornicates, its cheaper to rent.
