The Lilium Jet – The world's first all-electric VTOL jet

You can go to https://youtu.be/ohig71bwRUE?t=1m4s to actually see it fly rather than watch the inspirational poster powerpoint stuff first.

The fancy website to order one ‘in the near future’ or (get this) ‘Order your air taxi to the nearby landing pad.’. :slight_smile:

Hmm. Nope, can’t think of a single thing that could go wrong.

Although in a world where Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino’s can happen I am making best efforts to be less cynical. :frog:

All I see is a really big ARF, ducted fan R/C plane.

Wait @PFunk, don’t you really want to call it a drone?

The back slaps might have been premature, but I applaud their ingenuity and initiative. Plus, München is a great place to grab a beer in late September.

It’s cool. But if they get to call that a “Jet” then I get to call my T-Rex 250 a front line assault helicopter.
