This eccentric inventor has found a way to avoid traffic jams – with his own flying car.
Kyxz Mendoza from Quezon City, Philippines, started work six years ago on his incredible flying car.
Earlier this month he completed the first successful test flight – soaring some 25ft above the ground.
Kyxz calls his flying car the ”Ultralight Aircraft” and he now plans to mass produce it with a two-seater version added to to the range.
He said: ”We’ve been having bad weather so it took as a while after our deadline before we can finally show it to our followers. But after two months of tuning, here it is. I hope everyone will give this vehicle a positive reaction. This was only a dream for us five years ago.”
The aircraft has a metal frame with a carbon fibre shell and resembles the structure of a drone, only bigger.
It is powered by batteries which need two-and-a-half hours of charging time. It can then fly for 12 to 15 minutes.
Kyxz said his first designs were hoverboard style designs that he stood on and he steered with a remote control.
