FAA Approves Flying Car for Test Flights

I got all excited when I read that headline, that is until I realized that the FAA approved a one-tenth scale version of the flying car. frown

"The FAA exemption will allow Terrafugia to test the hovering capabilities of a one-tenth scale TF-X vehicle and gather flight characteristics data that will drive future design choices," according to Terrafugia, whose name is derived from the Latin phrase "Escape the Earth." "Because of the unconventional configuration of the TF-X, it is vital to achieve sustained stabilized hovering with smaller models before developing a full-size TF-X prototype."
