Yeah after watching this video a second time. Two things come to mind. One star wars speeder or whatever luke used in star wars that would hover.

Second why dont they make a full size version of this. I mean it may not be the best for landing with a human inside. But im sure they could work out something to make it a bit more stable or just hover only.

But flying car , flying boat or hovering plane. Im not sure what to call it but we need to make those.

This guy usually sells blueprints/instructions for his other kits, www.michaelconnally.com. But I heard he's actually making kits for the hydroplane.

Nitro wouldn't be that practical because the motor probally stayed at high rpms alot. But that was nice. I don't think a actual life sized version would be possible though. I read something somewhere about some kind a physics wouldn't allow it to do so. Just like a rc helicopter can hover upside down but a real heli cannot.

wouldnt be any higher rpms than an rc airplane.. probably lower most of the time..

the power to weight ratio is most likely what would be the problem in actual size..
