Mini Helicopter Allows Poor Drivers To Become Poor Fliers

Imagine being able to walk out your door, strap on a small device and fly to work, bypassing all the morning traffic.

It’s not as far-fetched as you might think.

New Zealand-based Martin Aircraft unveiled a strap-on mini helicopter designed to travel at a speed of 62 mph for about 31 miles.

“To be able to fly solo in a fixed-wing aircraft can take 15 hours of flight training, but most people wanted to be able to learn to fly the jetpack in a few minutes,” inventor Glenn Martin said.

So, for now, adrenaline junkies will be able to get the thrill of flying solo through the air with a smaller version that goes about 6 miles an hour and is in a controlled outdoor area.
