In well planned cities of the west I agree.... but in my dear Nigeria where power lines are strewn across streets and highways wily-nily, there will be plenty of burnt offerings to the gods of disorganisation and backwardness.

It will b designed to fly alone a road in the sky just like aeroplane has a path in the sky

It is not a conventional aeroplane that travel country to country.

It can only be use for short distance between town, city or streets.

Charge faster, but not durable and it heat faster also.

U r right, let use that bicycle lamp apparatus when u ride the bike u get light on the lamp. So if the car runs smoothly,it's should be able to charge from rotation of the wheels. Make charge on d go gbam...


Absolutely right. My take is focus has to be shifted from lithium batteries and research should be on other sources or materials that would have all the advantages you listed and be best not just for flying cars, but electric cars generally.

Also, we should think about having self charging vehicles: charging on-the-go with solar which would reduce our dependence on chargers and storage.[/quote]

Meanwhile we are here still obsessed with Tribal Superiority, or inferiority as the case may be. Aggressively, and sometimes violently insisting one culture is superior and the other inferior. Oh look at our colourful traditional attire. See swag na. On point. Afrobeat is twerking and taking over the world (meanwhile e nor even show face for major music charts). Plotting to control power, so as to control crude oil that is slowly but steadily being replaced by alternative means of energy.

We need to rethink our values, our priorities and what gives us a feeling of self worth and pride.

Not just battery development but also the overall design of the car of the future. No flying car should look like a drone or a small seaplane on land. A flying car should look like a car on land, and could change shape in flight.

Lol... I never knew you have this brilliant idea. Why not make a prototype? besides, your brain is hyperactive than the Chinese guys own.

Sweden already have a charge on the go system. The road is electrified for charging moving vehicles and the owner is auto debited for the charging. There are other systems being researched all round the world. How they will auto charge a flying vehicle in the air is what I don't know yet. But I trust scientist & technologist to come up with answers.

Tell him again. Maybe he doesn't know that even the Oil and Gas Giants (The Seven Sisters) are also partners in pioneering other renewable energies.

Electrifying roads is never going to be accepted by all as it poses more dangers than than any problem it's built to solve. The only way I feel moving vehicles could be charged apart from solar is by piezoelectricity! The tyres have to be made with a material that produces electricity as they move.

In the case of a self charging flying car, a 'hidden' rotor could be used to produce the charge, more of a small turbine system.

These are just some of my ideas, anyway.

Your view noted.
I've written there already that there are other systems being researched all round the world.

However, you must understand that there is no system that cannot pose danger especially when human error still remains a factor.

Safety considerations and development is a continuous journey in any scientific project.

As long as the car can fly because of the Bernoulli principle, this is not possible. One would always need an aerofoil with enough surface area just to lift the vehicle.

"Hidden rotor"! You will only be using the battery power to charge the battery. After one subtracts mechanical and ohmic losses, you end up depleting the energy content of the battery faster than if the hidden rotor was not installed in the first place.
