Flying Cars: Best Or Worst Idea Ever?

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Sure the idea of a flying car SOUNDS brilliant, but would it really so cool? Trace and Anthony sit down and look at the flying cars out there today (yup, there are some!) and find out if life would be any better if we took our cars skyward.

“Automaker Hyundai recently held what seems like the best office-wide contest ever, asking its R&D engineers to show off their ideas.”

Terrafugia: TF-X

“TF-X™ is the practical realization of the dream of countless visions of the future; it is designed to be the flying car for all of us.”

“Flying Car Gets FAA Approval”

“The Federal Aviation Administration has just removed a major hurdle from the path of a vehicle that may well be the first commercially viable flying car.”

guys that is all nothing about why flying Planes are terible you morons. License? Insurence? are americans really as dumb and ignorant to talk about legal problems? First of all, to travel in the Air you must overcome GRAVITY. We (as in mankind) invented the wheel, to overcome the second Problem in travel : friction. You will add gravity to that good luck. Its time to stop thinking about the problems and wishes of the people in terms of money, but in terms of ENERGIE!

The blind spots of this thing in car mode…

Traffic congestion isn't some inherent problem of having cars or roads – road communism is the problem; roads being run by the government and being given away for free. For-profit roads would almost certainly implement anti-congestion pricing. I believe they have this in Singapore.

How much you can fly before you have to refuel it? it looks to have small space for cargo … with the space for people and its engine…

Flying cars are a horrible idea now, but far in the future they could definitely work super well.

I forget. February 5, 2017 - 1:00 AM

there's a new driverless car that flys its still in the working and its called project vahana and there looking to have a working prototype at the end of 2017 its gonna be a taxi service so you can't buy one for you and the service is gonna be up and running in 2021

The act of flying isn't actually all that hard. Take off and landing is difficult, but still, once you've logged your hours, procedural memory takes over. The reason it takes so much education is that you have to know all kinds of contingencies for when things go wrong. And you have to know a lot of technical specifications. Rather, you need to understand them. If you're not flying through storms on a regular basis, though, it's physically pretty easy…certainly easier than a car.

I don't care…Make it HAPPEN!!!

A flying car crash could kill someone on the ground too.

Heavy wind and rain can ground a small airborne vehicles and the more vehicles are in the air, the greater the chance one will fall on you.

Why not do something similar to Back to the Future by having flying lane dividers?

MUTE September 21, 2017 - 12:28 AM

I'm making one.

Naren Henry September 24, 2017 - 6:20 AM

You guys should do an updated version of this conversation. The playing field is considerably different today.

We need electric flying cars with magnetic generators built into them.

I'm just going to make a personalized aircraft that can hover and it could go up to the edge of space but it has drivable Wheels folding up Wings short wings and engines that are for the wheels so nobody will get burned or chopped up so it's totally safe so vote for my idea

AcePilotMonkey gaming November 24, 2017 - 1:03 PM

these days people are too obsessed with cars

asaas sas November 29, 2017 - 8:16 PM

this video has been outdated

sebastian thomsen December 2, 2017 - 2:03 PM

how a hot air blimp/car drone hybrid?

xXxSkyViperxXx December 26, 2017 - 1:08 PM

oh i think flying cars for it to be a thing, itll need like certain airway roads to structure its flow so its not just all over the place. itll be heavily structured and regulated before it becomes a thing

Eli Smith December 28, 2017 - 2:09 PM

As a pilot these guys are really wrong

Mega- mind January 1, 2018 - 11:22 AM

I'm gonna make one, with electric motor.

Matthew Boyd January 7, 2018 - 7:52 AM

I think cheaper automated helicopters might happen.. for people who make alot of money.

"That was a Slow Curve" (Going from the Horse – to a Car)? In 13 Years New York Streets wen from Horses covering them – and 1 Car, to Cars Everywhere, and 1 Horse! >>> https://youtu.be/2b3ttqYDwF0?t=30s It is interesting to see what just over a Decade can Do! Basically – 1 Generation from Kindergarten, to Graduation!

Flying Cars today – are still in their infancy! Sure – lots of challenges to deal with! Harder than a Universal Minimum Income? I think not!

don't hate. everything takes progress. and we are getting much closer to "flying cars" with drones. it is wrong headed to say we shouldn't move forward until its all perfect.

joseph gilliand May 29, 2018 - 10:32 PM

At any intersection stop light look at the people driving cars around you and imagine them in control of airplanes! OMG!

God Of Planet Ki February 11, 2019 - 10:21 AM

Fucking horrible idea we are going to end up having islamists kamakazing into buildings

P Berezan May 12, 2020 - 3:33 AM

If we had flying cars … 911 would probalbly happen again
