Your own personal VTOL aircraft

Springtail VTOL

Devising yet another ingenious way for people to accidentally kill themselves (or as the British euphemistically call it "death by misadventure"-damn you, British, and your clever way with words!), Trek Aerospace is working on a line of personal Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) aircraft, including the Dragonfly UMR-1, and our personal fave, the Springtail EFV-4A (pictured above). Let's just hope they can build one that goes more than 18 inches off the ground.
