Mark Jennings-Bates recently spoke to our club about the concept of flying cars.  He has a background in car racing and said that many years ago the idea of a flying car was mentioned to him and he has been involved in producing one since then.  It was initially thought that the best power for a flying car would be some form of a battery.  That has not worked out as it has become evident that no current battery has the power for take offs, significant flight time and landing.

He has been involved in making a flying car that resembles a helicopter with retractable wings and blades.  You can see how it works at this website - https://www.facebook.com/kalrotary/videos/228106631404422/
