Well, that's pretty amazing.
The vehicle gets its vertical lift thanks to the 36 electric jets mounted on the vehicle's wings on a dozen movable flaps pointed downward, giving it enough force to lift straight up like a helicopter.
Once the vehicle is in the air, those flaps can be pivoted to turn that thrust horizontally, enabling, well, flying.
When done, the vehicle can then go back to vertical thrust and diminish the thrust for a smooth (we assume) landing straight down. Read more...More about Flying Cars, Lilium Aviation, Aeromobil, Tech, and Transportation
