    Looks like a hovering blender. What could go wrong?

    Flying car? How does it drive on the roads?

    Wonder how good the "forcefields" are if the collision is immediate and at high speed.

    Car - a four-wheeled road vehicle that is powered by an engine and is able to carry a small number of people.

    Airspeeder Mk3 - Erm, not a car

    Me too, i think i was at 80 KG for a day as i rapidly went from 75KG to 120 in a matter of a few months.
    I was well into the 30ties before i was steady over 65 KG, when i hit 40 i was around 70 KG, then my back went out - my shoulders went out, and as you all know my brain went out, and then BAM !!!! here is 40 - 45 KG more to carry around.

    I can see this as a sprint event with 1 "thing" at a time, no way in hell will 5 - 7 of these racing at the same time be any good.

    Yeah, I was comfortably (as in comfortable to sit on) over 100 at one point, but then dropped down into the mid/high 70's, lost a good few inches off of my waist, then did my back in, just muscle pull, but then the NHS physio twisted me and I cracked from neck to arse and now have a dodgy disc, I'm low 90's now and if I get much over that then I start to get back pain...

    As much as I'd like to have a play in one, I think I'm physically past it now lol

    Considering I'm ~90KG, and my non-flying car can cope happily with my weight, I think I'll stick to the ground versions.
