The 18-Rotor Volocopter Is Like a Flying Car, But Better | WIRED

You think those quadcopters are annoying?

Itís simple to fly. Itís stable. Its 18 rotors provide a lot of redundancy against system failures. It doesnít require a runway and itís powered by batteries, making it emissions-free (especially if you charge them with renewable energy). OK, fine, strictly speaking it isnít a flying car, because you canít drive it on the ground, but who cares? It flies.

I am going to call my accountant and see if it qualifies for the $7500.00 government handout since it is all electric.
