Moller's Flying Saucer

article's image

In the first hour, transportation entrepreneur, Paul Moller(1), talked about his latest flying vehicle, the M200X Volantor (PDF brochure(2)). The two-passenger, saucer-shaped craft, inspired by The Jetsons, is powered by eight of the company's Rotapower engines. The vehicle is designed to take off and land vertically, travel at ten feet in the air (in ground effect), and glide over virtually any terrain at 75 to 100mph. Moller expects the price to be around $100,000 if he gets enough orders for it. Get more details and watch video footage(3) of the M200X in flight at moller.com.
